About Me


living for the city


I am a 27-year old Finnish guy, lived most of my life in Tampere, Finland, but at the moment I'm doing an exchange year in Budapest. I live a life of a younger person, they told be, which might be true. I enjoy the freedom in my life and all of they stuff I can experience and learn.


The true fun in the life can be found outside of the comfort zone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to meet new interesting people and I hope that many people find me interesting as well. I get along with most kinds of people, but of course people who I could share the same taste and therefore start conversations with are always great to meet. I'm happy to share my thoughts with people and have discussions about anything, deep or light. I love to cook and eat dinner with people with wine and good music! I'm happy to help travellers to see the best places, those kinds that probably would not be in a tourist guide.


I have a special taste in things, and usually I'm quite outspoken about it. Though I'm used to making compromises, I rather not to and prefer doing things with people who share the same taste. I don't like doing the things the easiest way.
Some key words of my interests would be:
art, music, clubs, deejaying, vinyl records, urban life, design, bad movies, good movies, comics, modern architecture, mushroom picking, food & cooking, indoor climbing, hiking, cycling, social networking

Music, Movies, and Books

Jazz is the teacher, soul is the essence, house is a feeling, disco is what makes you drunk.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

DJ gig trip from Finland to Schipphorst, Germany in 2010 with 2 hours warning before leaving, eventually playing a DJ gig at avantgarde festival held at a farm house, back to back with Pakistanee feminist spoken word artist.

Seeing places with my beloved foldable bike is always amazing.
