About Me


Looking to find people in Stockholm, Paris, Berlin to hang with. Specially looking for people in Stockholm and Berlin to stay with!

Currently I'm a freelance content strategist, previously working on the Creative team at a fashion company. I studied Media Studies at UC Berkeley and have an online new media magazine that I run with a team of people called Browntourage.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have no couchsurfing experience so far and am looking to meet people and find warm, welcoming places to stay and make friends.


Fashion, art, music, writing, nature trips/retreats, photography, yoga + meditation, multi-media events.

Kind of a vintage/thrift shopping addict.

I love a good music event as much as a meditation retreat!

Music, Movies, and Books

Film: Documentaries, and directors like Frédéric Tcheng, Sofia Coppola, Spike Lee, to name a few.

Books: Marquez, Salvador Plascencia, Patti Smith

Currently listening to: Moby, Telefon Tel Aviv, Tycho, Matrixxman

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I met a great Sufi in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm hoping to learn a lot about the local underground cultural movements and generally meet creative people and similarly minded folks.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Lots and lots of stories!
