About Me


To find a place to stay near a decent golf course!


I'm a 41 yr old male from Iceland. Currently working as an IT manger for an auto financing company in Reykjavik, Iceland. I'm a father of three boys and been divorced for a couple of years.


Life's short so I try to make the most of it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven´t participated before, I just think that CS is a good way for people to save on travel expenses, as well as creating hopefully good memories.




Travel, sports, movies, good literature and last but not least, stimulating conversations about life and how we perceive it.

Music, Movies, and Books

Pixies, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Smiths, Diane Krall, John Coltrane, Leonard Cohen, James Taylor etc etc. I read all sorts of books, varying from autobiographies to thrillers to golf philosophy books....lol

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well, watching the rise and fall of the Icelandic financial system quickly comes to mind...lol
The traffic, atmosphere and lifestyle of people in India is another.
And of course, watch a friend hit a hole in one!

Teach, Learn, Share

I've travelled extensively over the years, including places like Eastern Europe and India, as well as having lived in the US for three years. So perhaps a good understanding of different cultures and how we Icelanders compare to the rest of the world?
