About Me


To unite all people in peace and to create a sustainable alternative system for the whole world.


I'm on a very long and very random journey around the world. Grew up in Norway... lived in London... now, god knows where I will be, who I will be, how and why. Would love to meet you, though!

Though I am seriously nomadic, I am looking for "community" in every sense of that word. My life seems to be going down (or up?) the sustainable-self-sufficient-squatting-dumpster-diving-anti-capitalist-environmentally-friendly-socially-responsible-anarchist-rainbow-brother-track. (Don't you just hate it when that happens?)

I'm just following my path. It involves a lot of communal work, I try to bring the ultimate idealism of sharing, brotherhood, communalism and free love into the practical world.


It's all about unconditional love...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Six years of travelling and being on the receiving end of a never-ending string of favours big and small has left me with the heavy but wonderful "burden" to see it as my duty to share whatever I have. And I try to smile a lot.

I haven't hosted much because of my constant travelling but I always welcome anyone into my tent or my room or my cardboard box. Couchsurfing is unfortunately flawed in the respect that you can't both be nomadic and have a verified address.


Couchsurfing changed my life...


The universe.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Er... Made a no-budget music video for a group of Berber musicians in Marrakech that they now make a living from...? Made an information film about female genital cutting with a grassroots organisation in Mali...? Discovered the meaning of the word "love" and my connection to the universe and what some people call "god" and how I am not different to you or a tree or the chair I am currently sitting on - all in one go...? Riding in a nomadic horse caravan community across Brazil for a year...?

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach: English (I'm a TEFL teacher); English pronunciation and phonetics (I used to be an actor); RandomLiving (if you need to spice up your life... yes, I do have my own cult); the mouth harp / Jew's harp / jaw harp (my travelling instrument of choice); Norwegian; how to cook the richest, creamiest pasta you'll ever taste.
