About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To do and to learn the most I possibly can

ABOUT ME

I'm a 23-year-old guy from Gothenburg, Sweden who loves and enjoys most things you can find in life.

My passion is to follow my dreams and goals in whatever direction that might be; traveling, adventuring, learn about people and cultures.

I never say no to new and intriguing things and projects I put before me. Not to train for a beginner-salsa-dance-show 3 weeks away, nor spontaneously hiking in the wildernes without food or shelter for a few days, neither just hang out with friends to just chill or philosophise.

To do and explore is the best part of life!

PHILOSOPHY

Dream, but also make sure to live fully today. Then tomorrow will turn out as fantastic as it´s supposed to do!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

However I can!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Only good ones!

Interests

My passion is travelling, cook and especially EAT good food, paint, meeting people, free diving and adventure sports, and everything that has something to do with the ocean or water. Above surface or beneath!

Music, Movies & Books

Music:
Everything from hiphop and rap to electro to indie and rock'n'roll. Some bands/groups I love at the moment: The Black Keys, Radical Face, Glasvegas, The Strokes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, White Stripes, Immortal Technique, Calle 13, Kaizers Orchestra, Joakim Thåström, Timbuktu, XX, The Knife, Dirty Gold, Håkan Hellström, JJ, Movits.

Books:
Usually I like surrealistic stories such as Brave New World and 1984. Anything with a philosophical or spiritual message is exciting and appreciated! Also I tend to read a lot of literature connected to whatever project/dream I might have in mind; diving, cooking, transatlantic sailing or inspiring autobiographies.

Movies:
Into The Wild, The Beach, Pursuit of Happiness, Intouchables, Moonrise Kingdom, Sin Nombre, Cidade de Deus, Silver Linings Playbook, Fourth Kind, REC, Sixth Sense, The Others, Signs.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

1. Jumped out of a plane TWICE!

2. And also jumped off the Nevis, 134 meter high, bungy-jump in Queenstown, New Zealand.

3. La Tomatina, Buñol, Spain. Throwing tomatoes on each other, along with 40 000 smiling and laughing tomato-covered people.

Teach, Learn, Share

I try to spread whatever knowledge I have, but I really think I´m the learner. I love listen to great stories and meet new fascinating people. I like to think "Other peoples success is my inspiration!".
