About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Ich habe 2022 mein Doktorat in Politikwissenschaften an der Universität Zürich abgeschlossen. Ich bin sozial, hilfsbereit und wissensgierig. Die Freizeit verbringe ich oft mit Wandern oder Freiwilligenarbeit. Ich trinkt fast nie Alkohol und rauche nicht. An Couchsurfing finde ich cool, dass man interessante Menschen aus der ganzen Welt kennen lernen kann.

I completed my PhD in Political Science at the University of Zurich in 2022. I am social, helpful and eager for knowledge. I often spend my free time hiking or volunteering. I almost never drink alcohol and don't smoke. What I find cool about Couchsurfing is that you can meet interesting people from all over the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Finding places to stay when I travel to meet new people and hosting people from all over the world.

Interests

Ich bin politisch sehr aktiv und engagiere mich für eine offene Welt. Ich reise sehr gerne um andere Kulturen und Orte kennen zu lernen. Ich wandere sehr gerne und auch sehr oft und filme diese seit 2021 auch und stelle sie auf YouTube (YouTube.com/theSwissHiker). Ich fotografiere/Filme gerne und singe in einem Chor, wo wir unter anderem Brahms Requiem und die Johannes Passion aufgeführt haben. Sonst programmiere ich gerne Webseite. Ich bringe gerne anderen Leute Sachen bei und liebe deshalb auch meinen Beruf, wo ich unter anderem Studierende an der Uni unterrichte.

I like to take pictures/film and sing in a choir where we have performed Brahms Requiem and St. John Passion among others. Otherwise I like programming websites. I like to teach other people things and that's why I love my job, where I teach students at the university among other things.
