About Me




I'm a Swede currently living in San Francisco. I love to travel and experience cultures, food and people from all over the world. I am spontaneous and always up for new experiences and adventures. I am a very curious and inquisitive person and my goal is to learn as much as possible about the world we live in.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As I consider myself an independent traveler, I have traditionally only relied on myself and a guidebook. When visiting China for the 2008 Olympics I was inspired by my friend Lucifer to leave the guidebook at home and try CouchSurfing. And well, I was simply blown away by the hospitality of the people I met and the level of immersion I got into the Chinese way of life. I'd been to China before, but this trip was so much more enjoyable and rewarding. CouchSurfing will forever change my way of traveling!


Traveling, hiking, nature, motorcycles, languages, tennis, ping pong, cycling, running, programming, photography, skiing and more traveling!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Won an adventure trip to Hawaii at the age of 20 and ended up living there for three months. It changed my life by sparking my interest in traveling.

"Birkebeiner of the Year 2008" award (54 km skiing, 91 km biking, 23 km running, all cross country). Attended the Beijing 2008 Olympics.

Won the European Collegiate Programming Championships in 2003 and placed 2nd in the World Championships in 2004 :)
