About Me




at the moment living in osaka (don't get fooled by my verified location, not going to change it until i settle down - whenever that happens?)! i'm doing an exchange year at osaka university studying japanese language and culture, but back home my major is psychology. i'm living in a shared house with a friend, so it's not granted that i can host you, but i'm always happy to show you around osaka (the little i know) in case you're interested!

Music, Movies, and Books

music: oh boy! i could talk about it for hours. something that i've been listening to lately: Young Galaxy, Boards of Canada, Nils Frahm, Nicolas Jaar, Douglas Dare, Ben Howard, Billie Holiday, Veronica Maggio

books: i wish i had more time to read! the latest novel was by a swedish author, but i'm also reading a lot of short stories, journal articles, and scientific literature online. i love prose with short, seemingly simple (yet complex) sentences that open up like chinese tea flowers

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-talking all night with friends or with people you've just met
-el camino
-new york with the best of random encounters that became great friends
-love disco on knarrholmen
-12-hour breakfast with a person i met the same day
-love and generosity of people i do not now

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach you how to make a perfect bread from the scratch, finnish/swedish vocabulary or how to dance in the rain like no body's watching!
