Hey there. My name is Martin. I am German born and raised but have moved to California for the first time in 2004. In 2009 I went I travelled the world for a year before living and working in Colombia for almost three years. I now lead an institute and teach at the California State University Channel Islands. I love the outdoors which is why I live right by the beach. I am also a certified kitesurfing instructor so if you are interested in that, the best wind is from May to September...:-). I love to host and get to know international travellers - we will be sure to have a good time if I am there (I often travel).
