About Me


Easy, World domination of course!


I'm a 27 year old reasonably friendly human being. I like to consider myself fairly tolerant but at the same time I'm pretty fixed on principles. :) I've finished studying and am now working full time with mobile TV solutions in a small company in Oslo. I'm originally from a small idyllic town called Grimstad on the south coast of Norway, but moved to Oslo last year when I got my job here.


Creating stuff and reaching goals brings great pleasure and joy in to my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm making my coach available and hope someone will do the same for me. I'm hoping to be able to go on a trip to southern europe next summer.


Surfed a few coaches before finding


My main interest is in computers and software programming. The creative demoscene and the internets. Politics, "the meaning of life", religion, philosophy, history, environmental issues. I'm a member of the norwegian socialdemocratic party and the norwegian Humanist association.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many computer science books, but recent books I've enjoyed reading is "1984", "The Dice man", "The God delusion", "The Big Bang", "Darwin award". Recent movies and tv series I've enjoyed watching includes "Wall-E", "Sicko", "The corporation", "Band of brothers", "After the wedding" and "Monty python's the meaning of life". My taste in music ranges from Michael Jackson, Madonna and A-ha to Iron Maiden, Satyricon, Pendulum, and Kraftwerk.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I guess being in a reality TV series is the obvious one here. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Perhaps I could teach you some programming? I work with Java for a living, but I'm experienced with databases and dynamic languages like PHP and Groovy as well. I like to cook, but I really suck at it. Perhaps you have some tips and tricks to share?
