About Me


Feel, hear, see, smell, taste! Look, run, jump, climb, dance, walk! Think, talk, laugh, cry, smile, focus! Give, get! Travel!


Some of the keywords would be:
positive, happy, lots of energy, thinker, doer, creative, concious, humble, early bird, night fly...

I live in the southern part of Sweden. Making of films, radio, arts and arranging various projects/happenings/whatever is what makes me up and running. Social networking, politically awarness, feminist, vegetarian.

Happy for all the small things in life. The sunset beyond the city limits, the sea in the morning, people passing by, colors, the feeling of bare feet in snow or grass.

My everyday work for a long time was as a teacher at upper secondary school level. I taught media and film. But i quit, and work with film making instead. Last year i've livet and worked in norway, and now travelling in Ecuador.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love the idea of doing stuff together with others. I really feel we should help each other out in this society that´s becoming more cold as we speak. CS2 is a very good way of collective collaboration for a better and more caring world.


Whats important in my life?
Well. Let´s see. A lot, of course, but here´s some.

Cultural Expressions. Like dadaistic performance, improvisation with dance, words, pictures. Im part of a dadaistic improvisation crew making various performances.

Film. Documentary, animation, experimental stuff. Classics and new. Making of (part of a local film collective in southern Sweden) and watching (Cinema, festivals, street screenings and stuff).

Music. dancing, making of... Electronic club music; drum n bass, techno, house, ambient, clics n stuff. But also pop, indiepop and more...

Social life, partying, relations, friends, experiences, travelling, curious about stuff i don´t know about, and more...

Politics. Everyday politics; another world is possible, queer-feministic living and analythics... Living life as you learn, and more.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This years birthday excursion to the redwoods, north of SF, California. Me and my wonderful friends entered this magical forest, deep in dinosaur land.

The feeling of screening a film you´ve worked on for several months. LIke giving birth, but without the pain. :-)

The feeling of your body after 10 hours of constant dancing. I´ve done that trip so many times, and I just can´t get enough. Without the chemicals! Just your own body...

Teach, Learn, Share

I´ve got 3 yrs experience in teaching at a upper secondary school, and also free courses, workshops and stuff. Teaching film making, computer handling (programs, technics and more), graphic design, video editing, designing web sites...
