About Me

I am not too new to CS but have failed to see a point in paying to get verified. As I read on an experienced surfers profile, references and a quality profile would do just. I am the sort who prefers to get out of cities as often as possible to go on hikes and to go camping in the mountains. Reading books is a part of me as well. When in a new city, I prefer to explore on foot or cycle (also it's the cheapest way to do so). Meeting new people on these travels has been wonderful so far. There's so much to learn every time.

Right now I am studying masters in production engineering at Chalmers University, Gothenburg.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet people while hosting and being hosted. Moving into a new city where I didn't know anybody, CouchSurfing introduced me to some very pleasant and happy folks, who are now good friends of mine. Would like to keep my circle growing and keep learning something new every time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Stok Kangri (almost :P), (6,153 metres (20,187 ft)) is one of the most beautiful and the highest mountain in the Stok Range of the Himalayas in the Ladakh region. It's a trek I want to go back to finish for many reason and one of it being I can put it down here as 'done'.
- Participating in SAE BAJA Korea. Well it was the team of friends who made the experience of building an ATV amazing.
