About Me

studied computer engineering, like computers, music and traveling, try to improve myself in many aspects.


seize the day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


participate the local events where i live and when traveling. surf, host, spread the word.


In summer 2008 I've traveled all over Europe, stayed at the places of 16 members in 6 different countries and generally had great time with every single one of them. That's how it all started.


music, movies, computers, photography, chess

Music, Movies, and Books

music: mostly nordic bands; stratovarius, kalmah, catamenia, shade empire, eternal tears of sorrow, trail of tears, siebenbürgen, old man's child, tristania, persuader, dissection, draconian, illnath, graveworm, novembre, agathodaimon, equilibrium, haggard and so on.

movies: like psychothriller and related stuff the most, but don't limit myself to that. stanley kubrick would be my favorite director. the killing, pi, requiem for a dream, barry lyndon, a clockwork orange, the shining, funny games, le temps qui reste, dogville, the machinist, the tenant, fight club, seven.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Revontulet, Machu Picchu, Tuska 2008, night cruise in St Petersburg, Gullfoss covered in white, becoming a Väinämöinen. Many wonderful places in many different countries.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm quite interested in the culture and food of the countries, about which I don't have much of an idea. What I'd be able to share is probably my knowledge about music and computers.

I'm dying to see New Zealand.
