About Me


To boldly go where no man has gone before.


Outgoing, generous, amazingly handsome with a smile that turns knees into yello, the very essence of panache... but still with enough self distance to laugh at myself. Im a student of many things; arts, politics, anthropology and computer programming. When I travel I travel to meet people, not to do sightseeing or shop for things. Okay... thats two lies in a row, but people are important too, right? Oh yeah, and Im totally nerdy. Like real bad.


You sing, even though you are shitty at singing. You dance, even though it looks like a faulty puppet. You drink, even if it makes you stupid. Do what makes you happy, for no one else but yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


You are welcome to my home, and I will gladly show anyone around Gothenburg, or just meet up for whatever. Culture? Sure! Sightseeing? You bet! Clubbing? Why not! Just leave you alone to your own devices? Meh, guess I can do that too.


Used to host and travel a lot on a shared CS-account, but have now taken it upon myself to go out into the world by myself, and take people into my home.


If youre talkative, we will find something in common. I like to talk more than I like any specific subject.

Music, Movies, and Books

Culture is such a broad subject to discuss in such a limited space. Besides, what does our favourite cultural expressions say about us? What does what we choose to display as our favourite cultural expressions say about us? I dont have time to read much any more, but might squeeze in a movie here or there, but music is a constant part of my life. If its not attentively listened to, its in the background, waiting to be heard.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have seen the dark universe yawning, where the black planets roll without aim, where they roll in their horror unheeded, without knowledge or lustre or name. And also been amazed by the kindness of strangers, and eaten jellyfish.

Teach, Learn, Share

To find meaning in the meaningless, to see idealism in cynicism. Lets share philosophy on life! Can also recite poetry and withstand a lot of alchohol, usually the both happen at the same time, strange enough. Lets share that too!
