About Me


Well... i honestly think "all about you" is kind of a tough one... but anyway, I'll give it a shot.

I am 28 and I'm a musician. Making music, writing songs, trying to make honest, straight-from-the-heart-music - be it loud or not so loud, electronic or acoustic, hard or soft.

I've been travelling a lot and living and working in all kinds of wonderful places - lately I am mostly based in Brooklyn though.

Well, what else? I am crazy about soccer, but that's honestly all there is to say about that...

Lately I've started to make movies and I shot 2 documentaries in Asia, which was an amazing experience!

That might not create much of an image but it's better than nothing.
Just drop me a line if you wanna surf with me - I'll be happy to host you if I can!

Oh, here's the kind of music I make:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been hosting alot of wonderful people and I had the pleasure of being hostes by so many new friends all over the world!


I've been traveling through canada, the usa, mexico, brazil, uruguay, Nepal, india, thailand, laos, cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, Turkey, Pakistan, Iran and most of the EU, i have at least met, sometimes stayed with so many people from cs, and hosted quite a few as well. Not once did I have a bad experience... Seriously - this might be the greatest idea this thing called internet has ever been used for ;)


I am excited about many things. From music, moviemaking, art, travelling, soccer and reading to things like my work. Really hard to point out something in particular.
