About Me

I'm a software engineer living in Oslo. I've studied abroad in Japan and South Korea, and lived in Japan for three years in total. I studied at Seoul National University & Kansai Gakuin University.

My interests include making music/videos, enjoying food etc. I'm also interested in languages, especially Japanese and Korean.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's nice to have positive visitors. I was stand-in for my friend Mikkel for one couchsurfer and she recommended me to another, and both were very fun experiences so I want to try it some more :)


Learning languages, traveling, making music, drinking, playing computer games, exploring strange places.

Music, Movies, and Books

Some KPOP/JPOP like Perfume, Girl's Generation, Big Bang etc. Also like some hip-hop like NWA, early Snoop/Dre etc. And thrash metal like Slayer/Metallica/Megadeth.

I enjoy Japanese movies a lot like All About Lily Chou-chou (リリシューシューのすべて) and Tokyo Family. Also very much like Sergio Leone's westerns, various by Kubrick, Tarantino etc.

Kafka on the Shore, Norwegian Wood and others by Murakami. Dune. Starship Troopers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Made music for the TV show 'Keeping up with the Kardashians'! One of the biggest TV shows in the world :D
