  • Description


    I am a fiction writer and I have founded a school for creative writing myself.
    I give classes in the evenings and weekends. So most of the day I work from home or from a Café.
    You don't have to be into books or movies yourself, I appreciate people who want to repair my bikes, curtains or swing my kitchen.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have been volunteering in Australia and traveled extensively during the past 15 years : South-East Asia, Russia, Ukraine, many Arabic Countries, Istanbul, New York, South Korea and of course in most European Countries. I have been living in Amsterdam for a while - have hitch-hiked a lot and always been keen to meet locals.

    I am interested in Etymology, Psychology, Arthouse-Cinema, Yoga, Buddhism, Meditation, Spirituality ...

    I am also a singer and I have a guitar here.
    So if you're a musician we could make music together.

    I sometimes take care of an 11 year old girl who recently started to learn English.
    So might spend time with her.

    But we could also go and play badminton together or go out for dancing.

    I would appreciate help in organizing my files and papers.

  • Accommodation


    I live in a very trendy area in Kreuzberg - close to park Hasenheide, the ex-airport (huge park), the canal and many nice and vivid night life / bar areas in walking-distance as well as the Turkish market.

    You will have your own room with a comfy bed.
    It is located behind my own sleeping room - but feel welcome to cross my room anytime at night to go to the bathroom etc. :)

    I am happy to share my home and food with you in exchange for c. 4 hours work / day.
