About Me


The journey is the destination


I'm a Norwegian/American guy currently living in Oslo, Norway. I attend the University here, as well as working part-time at a couple of places and playing music. I grew up all over, and have traveled a lot throughout my life, but not enough / never enough. I'm vegan and I don't drink or fuck with drugs. Not religious. I love bikes and warm weather, the ocean, surfing, jungles, hiking, coffee, writing, animals / all life, meeting new people, learning about new cultures and languages, playing music, politics, literature, and lots more. I take care of myself physically. I take care of myself mentally. Always on the lookout for inspiration. Always curious. Open-minded and respectful, but opinionated and enthusiastic. I can't slow down.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm pretty new to CS, but I'm no stranger to hosting bands / hardcore kids looking for a place to stay - and no stranger to being hosted either.


Going on tour. Sleeping on floors. Being shown incredible generosity by strangers.
