About Me


Saving up money for new adventures


I'm a Swedish student currently doing my master at the Oslo School of Architecture & Design. I'm from the dark woods of northern Sweden & I like to meet new interesting people.

I like a lot of stuff. Guitars (especially old Ibanez's), cameras, climbing, drawing, photoshop, travelling, just to name a few.

I live in St Hanshaugen which is a really nice neighbourhood close to the city centre and Grünerløkka, a cosy area full of bars and young people.

Oh, and please. If you're just looking for a cheap place to sleep, don't bother. I get alot of these copy & paste requests so don't waste your time. There are hostels for that.


Get out of your comfort zone!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting people when I have time.


I've met a few couchsurfers i Krakow, and i hosted two very friendly german couchsurfers the summer of 2010.
Couchsurfed in Rostock, Oradea, Berlin
Only positive experiences.

I think CS is one of the best internet innovations. It's brilliant


See new places, meet new people, learn new things. I'm a very curious person.

I spend most of my time doing what I like to do best. Photography, guitars, drawing, climbing, horse riding (the latter not that often, but I do love it.)
I would like to travel more. Learn scuba diving, sailing
