About Me


Settling down in Norway


Trust me... I am a scientist. But can't get used to think about myself this way. I am too curious and want to understand how things work. Love to talk about history, politics, sociology, culture and values. Pursuing a PhD.

Serious and thoughtful but also easy-going and love laughing.

Just to avoid any misunderstandings: I am straight and I am very sure about my sexual orientation. I am not here for hookups!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment only meeting people.


Overall really positive in terms of broadening my mind even when meeting people whom I will not otherwise meet - actually those are probably the most interesting.


Meeting new cultures, exploring the world. Sociology, politics, history and travelling (surprise!).

I would love to meet people who have similar interests to me.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have to read a lot of non-fiction literature for my work so I prefer to chill out with a nice movie at the end of the day. Some favorite movies that are on top of my head: The Shawshank Redemption, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, Gone Girl, Boyhood and TV series: Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, Vikings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled around Europe for 2 months without a plan - just bought a one way ticket to Madrid :)
