About Me


Influence society in a good way


I'm an idealist that is always curious.

I've found out that art is something I have to do. Though I don't try to constrain my self to a set image of what that entails.

My nature is always finding fresh ways of looking at things.

Friends are really important and I like doing things with them.


You should not do what your good at, you should do something that motivates you.

You can't be romantic about something you think you know.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed in Germany and Austria and had a really pleasent experience. I've also partisipated in meetings in Iceland and Germany. Couchsurfing is exactly how I imagined it a really good way to meet interesting people and getting a local taste of the country.


Art, people, discusion, cooking, and trying to find ways to make things better.
