Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Elie’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a story-telling, music-making, game-playing, hug-giving, and animal-loving person who is all about learning and having experiences. But most importantly for a site like this: I love meeting people. I work with kids and as a musician for media (both of which I love). I've done a lot of performing and love going to concerts/fests. I enjoy both going out/getting wild and staying in (which can also be wild :P ) and having fun (or just relaxing) without night life. I want to meet new people and get some laughs while we're at it : ) I currently live in Helsinki with three flatmates and I love it and them. This is a veg-friendly and queer-posi flat. We also have a sauna. A bit important: If I'm/you're hosting, please know that I am a vegan. Also, I love animals, but I'm a bit allergic to cats even though I love them too :_( I can still stay somewhere with cats (Thank you, pharmacies), I just thought you should know!
Obviously, my description doesn't say ALL about me as yours doesn't say all about you. Get in touch and we can get to know each other : )
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm on CS because I don't understand why I would stay in a hotel/motel when a potential friend I could get to know would invite me into their home and give me the local experience so that I can feel like I've *actually* visited a given country. Of course, I want to extend this to people who visit my city too. I have surfed, hosted, and attended CS events. It has been fantastic and I'm eager to make more friends : )
Music, languages, tea, games, animals, thunderstorms, good drinks, random encounters with strangers, and many other things.
Music, Movies, and Books
Metal, jazz, electronic, punk, folk, funk, indie rock, hip-hop, orchestral, and others. (Listing artists would be a lengthy mess. Just ask!)
Inglourious Basterds, Black Dynamite, Drive, MirrorMask, Walk Hard, Casablanca, Super Troopers, The Fifth Element, Wristcutters: A Love Story, classic Disney films :)
Some enjoyed reads: Fire Next Time, American Gods, Flight series, Can a Robot Be Human?, Eating Animals, The Ethical Slut, and Shadow Over Innsmouth.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I swam with a wild dolphin in Egypt.
I'm big on stories. You'll have to ask.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you a couple juggling tricks. How about we get together, discuss our talents, and then decide how to swap them? (Someone please teach me how to cook.)
