About Me


staying alive and happy :)


Me?..well Im a finnish guy who looooves the life! I study architecture and I like to do creative things..painting, drawing..Im also a huge musicfreak, my thirst for new music is neverending. Ofcourse traveling is my passion and I wanna see it all..I love to talk and socialize, and its always so easy and fun to find new interesting people everywhere you go! I think that the most important thing in life is to stay positive and excited about life and people, and to have the strenght to take risks in finding your way of living that makes you happy...and not taking life or yourself too seriously.


Things happen..and sometimes they dont..and then shit happens..or not ;).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Im social (as a finnish person this is really hard to achieve, haha) and ofcourse I love to do fun impulsive crazy things always when its possible..I also love to cook (my sushi is really good..and hardly nobody has ever died after tasting it).


My many friends have done couchsurfing and trough them Ive met a lot of other surfers..Ive always had a really good time with them.

Teach, Learn, Share
