About Me


Maybe Korea, South America or Canada!


I heard about this this website few years ago and I´m really glad to meet new people through it. I´ve been travelling quite a lot and enjoy seeing new places and cultures.

I'm running my firm and working as an creative within advertising/green business. We´re focusing on building concepts for new urban living through marketing and design. Especially we find environmental and social possibilities within the cities interesting. Our drive is to tackle all our subjects with positivity.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I heard this from my friend


Surfed only few times myself, but I´ve been swapping homes for years.
I´m experienced host and Helsinki guide.


I´d like meet new people from different cultures. Main interests are related on environmental topics and how we can change our lifestyle. Food is my passion and music follows me everywhere. And just about everything which is related to urban culture and design.

And more than happy learn something new!
