About Me

Socially awkward, curious, hyper rational and with the ability to see the positive in (almost) everything. I am a nerd with a viking sword. It's been said that I am quite adorable. Maybe it's because I smile a lot.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Why does anyone ever travel? To experience, explore and learn, of course!


History, archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, physics, evolutionary biology and so much more.
Movies, video games and books. Lots and lots of books
I enjoy cooking, even though I'm not particularly good at it.
I need a daily dose of nature in order to live, even if it's just a lonely tree. I spend much of my summers in a tent by a quiet forest lake.

Music, Movies, and Books

I mostly listen to metal, although I do love my Bob Marley. As far as books go, I read large amounts of factual literature. I have a weakness for all things Marvel, Doctor Who and Firefly. In my opinion, there isn't nearly enough anthropology and nature documentaries in this world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Can I really only pick one??

Teach, Learn, Share

My idea of working out mostly consists of practising sword fighting and other forms of old norse fighting techniques somewhere in the forest. If you are interested, I am happy to share what little I know.
I have a ton of knowledge, and I am always looking for more. Discussions and different opinions are always welcome.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm small, so I don't really take up much space, nor do I need to. No stranger to hard work if needed, a good problem solver and I am almost always in a good mood.
Generally an easygoing, friendly and highly adaptable person who never expects much.
My head is full of the strangest knowledge, so if you're curious about things, ask away!
If you don't mind my social awkwardness, I've been informed that I am good company.
