About Me


Becoming a diplomat for Norway


I'm a 2nd year master's student of social communication at the University of Agder, Norway. I spent the fall of 2012 as an exchange student at UC Berkeley, California, and I arrived here in Vienna in the beginning of January. Here,I'll spend the next 6 months working at the Norwegian Embassy / UN-delegation, and hopefully improve my German.

Personally, I would describe myself as an extrovert, active person; I enjoy 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 and English fluently, I speak German quite well and also a bit 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.


One, surfing on a couch the first night I came here to Vienna. It was a success, as I wasn't killed by an ax- murderer, but instead now have a good friend in the city. I would definitely recommend couch surfing after this experience!


Music, languages, travelling, movies, sports, chess.
