About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Right now, I am trying to have a great time in the Bay Area/ California. I love to skateboard. and i would be down any day to skate. Besides that I love having a good time and meeting new people.

ABOUT ME

I am living and hosting with my swedish girlfriend http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/tua-lisa/. I love to be outdoors. See new things but at the same time i don't mind chilling out every now and then. I have traveled quite a bit in my life and even spent months in the American wilderness. However, I was born and raised in the city and thats where i tend to feel more comfortable. Skateboarding, good food, great scenery is for the most part all i need, along with a place to sleep, to be happy.

PHILOSOPHY

My desire is "...to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticise after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic." Marx, in Tucker 1972:124]
