About Me


See new places, make new friends


I am an open and social guy from Norway, currently living in Trondheim where I am working at a research institute.

I travel as much as I can, especially in the winter time. I have a special passion for latin america, so I have been going there every winter the past few years.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted a number of people from all over the world in my apartment in Norway. I also try to go to the CS meetings once in a while.


I have been doing couchsurfing in several cities in Europe and Latin America. I have also met up with a lot of great people either by going to CS meetings or by meeting them for a coffee, drink or a walk around town :)


Travelling, making friends, dancing salsa/bachata/kizomba/chacha, learning languages, watching movies, listening to music, cooking etc.
