About Me


not to have one.


I am an open and curious person, love music and thinking. Periodically all round political but permanently feminist and anti-racist. Travel to Holland for seeing my supervisor and try to combine the trips with visits to other countries, as traveling from this island is getting more and more expensive. Like to get to know new places through the people living there.


Know thyself. But not like Socrates. He forgot his body.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd like to both surf and host, but I have introvert periods where I won't want to host people, and other periods where I'd like to host many... I'm also sometimes willing to go for coffee.


I've surfed in Nijmegen, tagging along with a friend, it was great, and now that I have a couch myself I would love to participate more.


Music, scholarship and research, people, politics, nature - hiking, swimming and running, the 12 steps, zen, more music - making, listening, concerts (organizing, playing, watching and dancing), literature, feminism, queer activism and anti-racism, all kinds of computer stuff, movies, art in general, mental health and alternative medicine... yeah, all kinds of stuff.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Saw Eminem perform in New York. I want more!

Teach, Learn, Share

I might be able to share some off-the charts spots in Reykjavík and Iceland.
I know yoga, Dutch, English, guitar, Icelandic folk songs, lots of mental health tips...

I want to learn... Always like to learn using new music programs and computer tricks in general, (like how do you toggle between documents in Word??) new songs on the guitar, guitar harmony (blues/jazz especially!), cooking... but most importantly, different ways to think. (And/or not think).
