About Me

Swedish husband. Three small kids I fiercely protect. Theology of the Body Catholic. Into home-schooling, aquaponics, cooking and reading about things that promote life and health.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing was really important to me when I was younger and traveling.
I'm in a position now where we can pay it forward.
