About Me


loving it all


Easygoing guy, slightly on the musical side. I love adventures.


(Go out and) Experience!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf, I host, I should go to CS meetings.


Surfed all across the States, and it's the best thing to ever happened to traveling. I've met so many cool, wonderful, amazing and inspiring people I would have otherwise not met.


I love to perform on stage. That's basically the best feeling in the world. I'm a blues and folk musician, playing my own repertoire and some traditionals. I sing, play piano and guitar.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rocked the Apple Barrel on Frenchman St. Dived with sharks. Build houses in Thailand after tsunami. Fell in love.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some basic guitar/piano/vocals if you like, don't expect to walk out a Hendrix/Domino/Hansard though.

Btw. Tell me what you can teach me in your request! Doesn't have to be anything, or very spectacular, I just like people having read my profile before they send something.
