About Me


To create an excitingly ordinary, balanced life.


Traveled for about five years. Hitchhiked like crazy. Was taken care of. Now looking to settle down and pay it forward.

See the references below, meet me and form your own opinion.

The universe loves you. Love it back.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am working towards being able to host awesome people who still find the road fascinating. Priority will be on no-plan travelers who end up in Helsinki and need to be saved. You know, hitchhiking and CouchSurfing don't always go together: I would like to fill that gap on my part and invite very last minute requests... soon. Not yet.


Most of my friends are in CouchSurfing although some of them think it's an evil corporation. For me it's just a website that has helped me to connect with wonderful people. I am thankful for that.

I also love the fact that CS brings together people from very different walks of life, with varying interests, dreams and lifestyles. Yet they are unified by the unquestioning trust in other people.

Oh, and, please write me a negative reference if you think I deserve one. We are responsible for the trustworthiness and integrity of the website.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled 3.5 years, completely without money (July 2010 - February 2014)... and realized it was nothing but a big ego trip. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Life, love and everything else.
