About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To unlearn everything I have learned. Then learn more.

ABOUT ME

I've been living in Denmark since I was 9. I've always been interested in music, and played alot of bass and drums when I was younger. I mostly get round to listening to tunes now these days. I have recently found a huge appetite for documentary, mockumentary, fuckumentary and science. I have also become very concerned about how we humans are treating the earth, and the direction our world's leaders are taking us. I believe that I can find kindred spirits of peace, love, and trust here on CS. I'm not all serious though, I love to spend time with my fellow humans and just have good hang-time.

PHILOSOPHY

Better late than never.
Loose your mind at least once a day. It's when you loose your mind that you come to your true senses.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I heard about this site I was very intrigued, and thought it was a great tool to promote peace, relations, and trust. I would love to contribute to this philosophy and break down the walls of fear that are being created in our "civilized" society.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Just got back from my first cs experience, and it was just awesome! It was a good wakeup call to get me up off my ass and out of this safezone i've created.

Interests

I love anything to do with music, and am open to any sorts of art, especially street art. I am interested in the truths of life, and have recently discovered a lively interest in buddhism and the unexplained.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Niagara Falls was an absolutely breathtaking sight.
Got through my final test in carpentry with a tennis elbow.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to make people more aware of the wonders of hemp and it's many uses. I would love to learn more about this plant and in other sustainable elements and theories. I'll teach you how to make the best scrambled eggs too! Or if you want to learn how to play the didgeridu or the jewish mouth harp I would love to assist you:)
If you're patient and have some rythm, I might be able to teach you a little human beatboxing:)
