To make A4 happy
Grew up in Sweden and moved to Budapest in 2011 to do a postdoc, continuing with another one in Florence, Italy, then back to Hungary, and then Sweden again. Having just moved to the very cute town of Norrköping - great apartment but basically no furniture (at the time of writing) so might be tricky to host :)
Spent a year in Wollongong, Australia, in 88-89 and did some complementary backpacking around the area in 1992 and 1995. Went back to Malaysia in 2008 - saya cinta negara itu! Finished my PhD in september 2010, also running a small consulting company on sustainability and programming since 1999.
Spare time: hanging out with friends, crocheting, sitting at cafes, working, sketching on projects, etc. Travel is big for me: ~40 countries and counting so far.
Before doing anything, ask yourself: Do i truly want to do this? Or do I want to do this because I want to be a person who would enjoy things like this? If the latter, then reconsider.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Hosted a bit. Only couched once (at a former-cs-guest-turned-friend!).
Crocheting, music/jamming, squash, traveling, languages, woodwork, handicrafts, digital circuit design, programming etc.

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Moon, Cargo, Last Night, Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurigo bom, Vacas, etc
Music: Zero 7, Cinematic orchestra, Elbow, Kashmir, Talking heads, Art of noise, Tindersticks, Band of Joy etc
Book: "The water-method man" (John Irving) - got it from an english backpacker in Berastagi, Sumatra, and that book changed my life!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Teach, Learn, Share
Yay, this was a fun heading! Soldering, arcade game maintenance, (formal) social network analysis, non-monetary measures on ecological resource consumption, peak-oil issues, php/mysql programming, Ecological Footprint methodology, bahasa basics, crocheting, world system analysis etc
What I Can Share with Hosts
Crocheting? :) And hanging out in Malmö - yeah, I might need to stock up on awesome people to hang out with; a bit too much living abroad recently.
