About Me

I ONLY HOST SERIOUS SURFERS. This means that you need to have filled out your profile explaining who you are, what you love, and have added some pictures. If you're travelling with someone, this applies to them as well. Send me the link to their profile. You should also read and understand the "My Home" section. If you don't follow this rule I'll DECLINE YOUR REQUEST.

CURRENT MISSION: Finding a couch in NYC! Never expected it to be this hard.

ABOUT ME: Hey there! I'm a tech geek studying Computer Science at The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. I get along with most people and can always find something interesting to talk about. Bonus points if we do it in Spanish, as i'm trying to become fluent :)

I try to learn more about the world every day. I'm a guy fueled with excitement to try new things and live life to its fullest. Experiences are priceless and I want to be part of as many as possible - together with the friends that I've made along the way!

Other than CS I spend most of my free time with my friends, but also my computer, which i'm very passionate about. Reddit, socializing, reading tech/science/political blogs, articles and learning new things. I love computers and technology as well as movies, music and general media. When I'm with friends I like to go out partying, play games, watch a movie...or just talk.

PHILOSOPHY: Life starts at the end of your comfort zone.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING: I'm always up for being the fun guy and doing crazy shit. I also enjoy sharing stories, experiences and lifehacks.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE: I've had a blast! I'd like to begin hosting on a consistent basis in order to give back to the community.

Interests

In any city my priorities are: Nightlife, Food and Culture...in that order!

-Making friends

-Party with said friends :)

-Eating good food

-Trying the local draft beer

-Movies/TV shows

-Stand-up comedy

-Music

-Working out to maintain my shitty diet ;)

I'm interested in anything that can be enjoyed together with friends and family.

My most common interests are hanging out with my friends, partying, playing games/watching movies or just messing around. Doesn't matter what we do as long as we have fun.

Music, Movies & Books

MOVIES: I love thought-provoking, surreal movies. This includes most works by: Stanley Kubrick, Quentin Tarantino, Darren Aronofsky, Christopher Nolan, Danny Boyle

Some of my all-time favorites: Pulp Fiction, Black Swan, A Clockwork Orange, Fight Club, The Social Network, Léon, The Shining, Sin City, Trainspotting

IMDb is my friend. I'm working my way through the top 250 films.

TV SHOWS: Breaking Bad!! (RIP), Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones (of course...), Louie, Silicon Valley

MUSIC: I love discovering new music to the point where keeping an updated list becomes extremely tedious. Generally I listen to anything indie depending on my mood.

Here's my Last.fm profile: www.last.fm/user/b_cake

Last update: Arctic Monkeys, alt-J, The Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Parov Stelar, The Black Keys, Florence & the Machine

BOOKS: I read Reddit and hours of articles every day, but I guess that doesn't count? I'm actually not much of a reader.

That said, I began reading Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series as a kid and still enjoy picking them up. Same goes for Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. My favorite book of all time is All Quiet on the Western Front.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The Tomorrowland festival was probably the most legendary party of my life.

TEACH: I have a bunch of random facts and mindblowing ideas that we can spend all day talking about. I will also fix you computer!
