About Me




I recently came back from Latin America to write my thesis (for which I did my research in Argentina) do some internships and drink some coffee.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I´ve participated since 2006 by playing along, surfing and hosting.


Been hosting quite a lot of people with my former flatmates, we operated under the name of pekkopegasos. So I originally started this thing in 2006 by hosting travellers in a shared flat with my friends. Since then I´ve also been known to surf couches from time to time.


Im interested in politics, cinema, basketball, music, literature, pub-quizes, indian pale ales and strong coffee.
