About Me

We have a new (to us) apartment with a spare room for guests.

-I cannot do weekends at the moment, and you will need to be gone on Friday around midday.
-More than 2-3 nights is too much

2m tall and easy to spot. I applied to do a Master's degree in Finland so that I could be with my Finnish girlfriend in 2012, and I have been living there since. I'm quiet and respectful and left the partying behind in my 20s. I enjoy a lot of good coffee in the morning and a good beer or two in the evening.

Jaana, my fiance, has a PhD in forestry and speaks Finnish, English, German and Swedish.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Did a couchsurfing/interrail trip across middle Europe in March/April 2016 - jumped headfirst into CS and now I'm planning to host when it's convenient.

Interests

Basketball, cars, art, nature, fishing, hunting

Music, Movies, and Books

Metal, hard rock, classic rock, alternative. Sci-fi, action (books and movies).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moving to Finland was a big change. I came from a place where a snowflake would shut down a city to a place where they barely notice a blizzard. An almost tropical climate to wearing a jacket most of the summer. One of the toughest and most rewarding things I've ever done. Also, learning to speak and understand Finnish language even at my low level has been quite an achievement. It's a special language for sure!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm pretty good in the kitchen. If you want to know about Finland or America, I can help. Want to practice English, I got you. I'm pretty good fixing and tinkering, an engineer afterall. We can talk environment and sustainability if that's your ☕ of tea.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Bahamas, Belgium, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, England, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vatican City State
