About Me




I'm a 29 years old girl originally from Finland, but I've lived a bit here and there. All the way up in nothern Finland, Lapland, and down south in Mozambique.

I work as a freelance journalist and a story producer.

I consider myself open-minded, adventurous and enjoy meeting others with the same attitude towards life.

Besides traveling I'm interested in different cultures, urban life and on the contrary the great outdoors.

I love movies and documentaries and hope to start working on my second own documentary project soon.

Culinary world of food and wine is a big passion! I enjoy cooking for others and having long dinners with friends.
I follow a vegetarian diet with the exception of fish and seafood.

I'm up for hanging out, showing you around the city and getting to know people.

¡ Spanish speakers, I'm always looking for people to practice my skills with (nivel básico) !
