About Me

Hello. You can call me Glyde.

I work as a project manager for language technology in Helsinki. Basically, I help make those online machine translators, or help how your phone can talk and reply to you. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I just like to talk to travelers from different countries. It's a good way to know people from different backgrounds.


- Languages. Comes with the territory as I'm a linguist. :)
- Fitness, especially the gym.
- Video game and board games. I particularly collect boardgames. I also love to play DnD.
- Outdoors, like camping or kayaking

Music, Movies, and Books

English: Anything that's catchy!

I actually watch more documentaries and science shows on Youtube than movies.
I've been reading more textbooks on linguistics lately than reading for pleasure. Lol.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
