I was born in Switzerland and raised abroad, and have since made my way back to my homeland to start my professional career here. In March, however, I already I quit my day job to start a startup and have been working on building our prototype since.

For me, travel is all about really experiencing life in other countries and seeing the things that truly make a place special. I was an avid couchsurfer during the early days of the site and have since moved on to and had some great experiences on AirBnB. I've been really impressed with the great people I've met and the amazing places I've stayed. Nothing can compare to the experience of living in a local's cozy apartment for a few days while you get the inside view on day to day life. Staying at a hotel just doesn't cut it for me anymore.

I'm a person who enjoys the simple things in life- good food, good friends, and good experiences. I love to hear people's life stories, especially of adventure or of their passions and what drives them in life. That's what drives me to constantly seek out new ways to experience the amazing world we live in.
