About Me


Live, laugh, love - and continue learning, growing, and experiencing LIFE!


With a master in communication, you'd think this kind of thing should be piece of cake, but I contend that there are few things in life as complicated as communication... Or like a good colleague used to say; "All problems exist in the absence of communication"..

I would describe myself as an extrovert, curious and active person; I enjoy traveling and spending time with my friends,and getting to know new people; in addition I enjoy my hobbies, such as music, sports, languages and movies. I speak Norwegian, English and German fluently, and also quote a bit of Spanish.

I don't smoke.


Do to others what you want others to do to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Voluntarily, given that there is such a thing as free will.


Several experiences from various places I've both lived and visited, including Vienna, Florence and Oslo. All of them great experiences! I remember I was nervous before my first time sleeping on a stanger's couch in Vienna, but summed it up lated as a success, as I wasn't killed by an ax- murderer, but instead made a good friend in the city (we are still in touch). I would definitely recommend couch surfing after my own, personal experiences!
