About Me

Back to hosting surfers after a long hiatus.

I enjoy meeting new people and visit new places. I love traveling, climbing, music production and writing. Right now I'm working as a software engineer in Stockholm.

I like not worrying about the future, but instead having fun today. I focus mainly on what I'm doing today, and making the best out of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would love to be the host that I would like to visit myself. I feel like it's a lot easier (and of course cheaper) to stay at a random dude's place, and I want to be that random dude!

Currently only hosting independent solo travellers (unfortunately non-negotiable)! I'm quite a busy person and have my calendar constantly filled. You're of course very welcome to stay at my place, but I might not be able to socialize THAT much or guide you around town. I'll definitely give you recommendations and show you all the places on the map. Hope you'll enjoy a couch anyways ✨


Climbing, yoga, music production, watching old movies, coding, veggie food.

Music, Movies, and Books

Everything. Culture is always good. All genres. Current mood: sub-saharan blues, techno and new school hiphop.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was a contestant in the Swedish version of "Who wants to be a millionaire?"

Teach, Learn, Share

Everything I know, and everything you know! I’m mainly curious about travels, unknown destinations and quirky trips. Tell me about your Patagonia retreat or your 7 day hike in the Mongolian desert! Other than that: climbing, music production, and maybe abnormal views on society. Also movies. And cooking veggie food. And maybe some coding.
