About Me

ABOUT ME

Silly boy with interest in spiritual, social justice and change. I live around the world, learning about myself through contrast and challenges that different cultures provide. Hoping to become a better person, a little bit every day.

19 years ago started dancing at raves. 15 years ago started working in digital media. 8 years got a "spiritual" awakening after a serious burnout. 5 years ago left to live around the world as a nomad.

I'm an "Intuitive feeling perceiving" -personality type. Kind, good listener and social, but I need some time alone as well. Walking randomly and observing local life is my favorite hobby.

IDEALIST? "Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself." -Rumi

PHILOSOPHY

Step outside your comfort zone and it grows.

Courage is not acting in the absence of fear, it's acting despite your fears.

Vibrations. You can't fake them, you can feel them.

Do unto others as you would have them do to you. (Would be easier if I wasnt so asleep with my ego most of the time)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have attended events and activities a lot in many countries and organized a Las Fallas festival event in Valencia and DubFX party night in Budapest. Spreading the word of CS to pretty much everyone I meet :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted a couple of times, surfed in Spain, Slovakia, Dubai and Iran.

Interests

Vibrations. Feeling other people.

Dreams, psychology, alternative therapies

Yoga, meditation, "spiritual practices"

Architecture, new cities, street art, long and totally random walks, getting lost.

Creative interior design (low budget, recycled)

Food, tastes, flavors. Creative cooking.

People and perspectives, questioning my ways through contrasts.

Usability, Interfaces, design.

Dancing, creative movement, improvisation, rhythm, sound, lights.

Music, Movies & Books

Everything with a beat. Have you seen that Dub FX guy?

I started going to raves back in 1996 and even if I'm not that active anymore, I still enjoy the atmosphere of a good trance or drum'n'bass party. I feel at home among people who genuinely love dancing.

I enjoy jazz clubs, but also classical music concerts.

I'm open to all sorts of music, but dislike most of the 80's stuff and hit music..

Books: Jonathan Livingstone Seagul (Richard Bach) Sadhus (Patrick Levy) Everyday Zen (Charlotte Joko Beck) Alchemist (Paulo Coelho)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Feeling the energy when the whole of Dharamsala gathered to the Dalai Lama main temple and sang in Tibetan.

Sitting on co-pilot seat of old Antonov biplane when taking off, felt almost like a vertical lift off (compared to big jets :)

1300 steps to Tiger Cave temple in Krabi to watch sunrise, meditating and observing family life of monkeys surrounding me.

Philippine tarsiers. Mischievous looking little gremlins :)

Waking up in a dream.

Going to drum'n'bass parties. The atmosphere when everyone is dancing like they just don't care, jumping and going crazy.. amazing everytime :)

The first blue sky day after a long and dark winter. Everybody smiling.. is this Finland??

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a curious creature. What ever you love doing, I love learning about.

I could help you with things related to online marketing, websites, nomadic living or tell how to make the perfect drink using a fresh coconut.
