To live, learn, and love!
I am a Master's student in Sweden, learning all about human behaviour and interactions in the world. The user experience and visual design drives my interest. I love to travel and meet new people. I keep an open mind and happy thoughts.
Hmm...my mantra. I'm a firm believer in positive thought and being open-minded. I really enjoy discovering new cultures and cuisines and love love love travel.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Attending local meetings, connect with other CS'ers, meet for coffee/drinks, give advice to fellow CS'ers who will be travelling in my area or places I have been before, share stories and experiences.
Recently had my first surfing experiences and am looking forward to more. Also, haven't hosted yet, and hope to change that also. It's tough, I move around so much and often don't have suitable space for guests.
I love the outdoors: hiking, cycling. I like lots of adrenaline sports, but in small doses. I like a lot of sports, but mostly recreational including: basketball, soccer, rock climbing, volleyball, badminton, ultimate frisbee to name a few...
- outdoor activities
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Most of Ayn Rand, The Order of Good Cheer, and I'm a big nerd for responsible design authors: Victor Papanek, John Thackara, William McDonough, Janine Benyus
