About Me


Host couchsurfers.


I was born on the 4th of June in 1980. Since then I have grown both physically and mentally. And now I am in an internet cafè in Quito, Ecuador writing my life story.

*edit* Obviously I´m not still in this internet Cafe in Quito... but I like this life story and don't want to change it.


You create your own destiny. If your life sucks it´s probably your own fault.
Heaven and hell are states of mind, Jesus is a state of mind. Do good things and good things happen. Do bad shit and bad shit happens.


I like:
Traveling, meeting people, deep discussion, life/nature, pleasant surprises, music, how stuff works, reading, climbing, swimming, hacky sack

Music, Movies, and Books

Downbeat: Jazzy/funky/lounge-y electronic stuff, world music with a western touch, reggae, ambient.
Upbeat: Electro, House, Funk, Disco and anything that just makes me wanna move.

Nonfiction mostly

Movies and TV:
Don´t like meaningless crap. I sometimes daydream about kicking the TV in the livingroom or shooting it with a shotgun. (don´t own a shotgun btw.)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming and rock climbing naked in a geothermal volcanic fissure with the North-American tectonic plate in my right hand and the European plate in my left, at lake Mývatn.
