  • Description

    (occupied until ~ June 2020 )
    I started as a Plumber in Switzerland, made roofs later (The flat ones out of bitumen).
    As many other swiss citizens, I joined our army and served as a group leader in a leadership support battalion.
    Since I always liked computer games I learned to develop software.
    Science was also always one of my hobbies so I have a bit of knowledge in Biology/Chemistry/Physics.
    As you can see I have a lot of interests and always willing to learn more.
    My humour might be a bit strange to most people but it did not kill anyone so far.
    Work and Travel is basically my life for around 7 years.
    My start was in Sweden on a campsite where I also meet another host, he was into catering.
    Besides, I helped in some refugee homes mainly in the kitchen.
    I found this platform in 2017 and met already some great hosts.
    And I'm really grateful for all the things I learned at that time. Many hosts gave me the opportunity to do things that I have never done before so I collected many new skills.
    If you have any questions feel free to ask.
