About Me

I´m a full time vanlifer (see my self converted van in my album or Instagram) from Sweden working 60% remotely as a business developer in a innovation- and digitalization company helping companies to be more sustainable. My motto is "work less live more".

I've been living abroad for a few years like Nicaragua (working with kids living on a garbage dump), Spain (learning Spanish), USA (business and pleasure) and China (studying international business). I love people and to talk about life and society and norms etc.

I love photography, motorcycles, food, traveling (of course) and I'm interested in almost everything the world shows me 🙂

Now I'm on a looooong trip with my motorcycle to Gran Canaria until the spring is back in sweden 😋 Therefore I'm looking for places to stay on the way down there. Please let me know if you have a couch I can borrow for a few nights 🙂 I'll make you pancakes! 🥰


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet cool people around the world. I´m a lifestyle entrepreneur. I do my business as I travel. I don´t make much money (yet). My dream is to be able to travel and make money in the same time =) I love meeting new nice people and I love the couchsurfing concept.
