About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To become the funnest weirdest awesomest art teacher there is + collect stories.

ABOUT ME

To describe myself could be the most difficult question to ask me.. I'm soo complex.

Naa, I see myself as a creative spirit. I've studied a bit of art and one of my current dreams is to make a children's book, not to rule out the adult readers.

I like to host parties, big fan of themes. I've also organized a small charity festival, all the volunteers and us ran around with red hats because of the festival name, Live Aquatic.
It's a sickness really, I can't plan anything without firing of into space with ideas.

Other things about me is that I'm not a good mingler, I try to capture this talent called smalltalk but I must say that I've failed so far. But people seem to like me anyway.

I like to write lists of things. Good films, favorite animals, what I want to do before I die a painful death, I'm guessing car crash. I do this because of my goldfish memory. Lists are my best friend. That and all my other friends that is best.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm stealing this: How hard can it be?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted a couple of interesting people and showed them around town a fair deal! I would say I'm a very devoted host if I have the time to do so. I've also met people when I've been out traveling, not yet surfed but that's coming up soon I guess :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met some awesome people through couchsurfing.

Interests

I love to eat, draw, listen to vinyls, make bargains at flea markets, ride my bicycle and to drink beer with grass between my toes. Dance! Whether it's Lindy Hop or spiritualistic nude dancing to classical music you'll probably find me on the dance floor.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love every movie Jean-Pierre Juenet ever made, Spirited Away, The Life Aquatic, Moonrise Kingdom, The pursuit of happiness, the Untouchables, Mary and Max, Edward Scissorhands, Heartbeats, Biutiful, Le Havre, Rear Window.. Flight of the Concords! I guess I have to throw something in here like Pretty Woman as well.

My taste in music is quite wide and I go through phases. At the moment I'm listening mainly to raspy vinyls with dark dry comforting voices like Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg and Lee Hazelwood - preferably combined with Nancy Sinatra. I have a tendency to get drawn to quite melancholic music, I put a lot of effort in to trying to listen to more happy music.
I dance to just about anything but I would say nothing gets me going like the 90's or indie pop. Joy Division and Chuck Berry also makes me wildly happy.

The best book I've ever read must be The Little Prince, Everything else falls in shadow.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once saved a little mouse from a vicious cat, one of my big achievements in life.
