About Me


To do as many of the things, I love, as I can! Which mostly means: work hard on popularizing soil science, soil ecology and environmental science, writing my articles, discovering new things.


I have found the thing that interest me the most - soil ecology and teaching. I am a PhD student at Tallinn University and that is where I spend a lot of my time, I also teach at a high school part time. Other than that I love nature, hiking and interesting people. I enjoy good movies and tv shows, good books and nice architecture.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I host and have surfed, occasionally meet up with people. Other than that I don´t have time for much. It is always easiest for me to meet up with someone in Tallinn for lunch/dinner/coffee or show them around town than just host, as I live about 30-45 min out of town by car or bus. But guests are also welcome.


I have hosted and surfed, met up for coffee or beers, showed people around town and been shown around towns. Got advice from CS and have given it back to people. Have met very many interesting people whom I hope to meet once again.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seen thousands of amazing diatoms, collembolans and mites etc - seen what goes on inside the soil (or at least a fraction of it) - and they are not "creepy" :)

Appreciated the small things in life - playing badminton barefoot in my own front lawn, got my fingernails dirty from gardening, breathing fresh air while hiking, the morning frosty air on my way to the bus, cooking from scratch and so much more.
