About Me


Making green business good business. I work every day to help green innovation get implemented on a broad scale - and I love it.


Trashtalker as per profession, for a long period of my life I was literally paid to talk shit. I was educated to do just the same at the department of Anthropology in Copenhagen.

I love food. Everything I do is related to food in one way or another, I'm studying food systems and I am currently building my own garden where I live. I am amazed that food is one of the very few human essentials that we can all agree is an essential - and still so many of us have no clue how to make these strange substances from scratch.

When I travel I usually prefer staying the same place longer rather than shorter, the same goes for my guests, please only request one night stays if you are incredibly hilarious or are ready to stand trial as insanely interesting.


I regard my sorroundings as a part of myself, therefore it is my responsibility to make my part of the world a better place to be.
I believe you can always influence any situation with your choice of response to the events your faced.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm living in Brønshøj in the outside of Copenhagen city Center, I host surfers here, take people dumpsterdiving and give tips on where to go on the conversations page of CS.


I wake up around 7 in the morning, after having been drinking sake with the entire village the night before. My host is waking me up. "We're going to birthday party!". In my complete bliss of heavy hangover and sleepyness, I interpretate this as a good thing. Cakes, soda and kids - good cure for any hangover!
We arrive, by motorbike, at the birthday party, and we realize this is a trap. There's no kid, no cake, no soda, lots of fishermen, lots of sake and no exits.

We wind up being drunk way under the tables of this 12 year-birthday party, with no 12-year old. This is just one of many great and surprising memories I have from couchsurfing, I'm looking forward to sharing these stories with you, and creating even more!

So far I have only had incredible experiences with couchsurfing. I've made so many friends from all over the world and met the most amazing people!


Music (I have a giant recording studio and work as a sound engineer)
Tricks (I'm really a sucker for good party tricks and bar skills)
Excercising (lifting heavy stufff is one of the things I love the most)

Music, Movies, and Books

At the moment I'm not wasting too much time watching movies, I like odd movies.

I'm pretty large on the music front. At the moment I listen to Lumineers, Rhye, David Bowie, Beethoven, Reks and tons of other stuff.

Currently I'm reading The Alchemist (sep '16)
Lamb by Christopher Moore, it's about the childhood of Jesus and how this kid deals with making miracles all the time, it's hilarious. I just finished You Shall Know Our Velocity, Choke, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Book of Illusions, How to get filthy rich in rising Asia and tons of other amazing books.

For all categories, I like anything that'll make me smile or satisfy the decay romantic living inside of me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I've seen is the difference and yet the similarity between all cultures I've intereferred with in my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you about food, anarchy, dumpster diving, permaculture and travelling light and cheap.

On top of that I've learned a lot about innovation, entrepreneurship and startups in the recent years.

I'd love to learn new skills, recently I learned how to solve the Rubiks Cube, to memorize a deck of cards and juggling
