About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live as much as possible in the present while still following my goal and build up my life

ABOUT ME

I'm a visual artist and free lance exhibition curator.
I love every day a lot!

PHILOSOPHY

I can just say that my main goal is to live in the present cause that is the only thing I can grasp, and still build up my life in a solid way.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Friend of mine told me about it, she was all into it and I had heard about it before so I thought I'd give it a go.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Not really in this organized way. However, when I travel I mostly stay over with friends. And the very first time I went to Amsterdam, Holland, summer 1999, I went without any plans. I arrived in the evening, and fortunately it didn't take long before I had met really friendly people who let me sleep on a mattress in their nice apartment. So then I stayed for a week or two, sleeping in all kind of different houses meeting really nice people.
When i got my own house in Amsterdam I also started hosting people, sometimes people I didn't know.
That's nearly ten years ago (OMG!!) and by now I like to have things a bit more organized..However I still find it essential when traveling to meet locals, and for me part of the great thing of traveling is the spontaneous feeling to it.
And I really like to show visitors my own city.

Interests

Creating art and art exhibitions, writing, walking through a city without any goal (it's like traveling, thoughts flow and anything can happen!), reading a good book, dinners with nice people, good movies, yoga, Paris, coffee in the morning on a sunny balcony.

Music, Movies & Books

Do I really have to make such lists?
OK then, just to mention a few:
Movie directors: I love the movies of Wong Kar-wai.I love the lonely, poetic and silent language in his movies. I also really like the films "delicatessen" and "Dogville".
Music: Electrelane, The Real Tuesday Weld, Cat Power, Sweat X, Yoko Ono, 2 Unlimited(!), Anne Linnet, Tanita Tikaram, Vive La Fete, Glass Candy, Avenue D, Tiga,
Book authors: Right now I'm reading a book by Lawrence Durrel. I also really like Milan Kundera and Paulo Coelho.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Watching the moon and the clouds at night from my balcony. I wish I had a balcony though...(I wrote the first sentence a while ago, when I lived in Amsterdam..now I live in Paris and I will just have to watch the courtyard..)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can give you a yoga lesson! Am not pro, but sometimes teach friends. I love yoga and meditation.
I can also help you writing (mainly in English or Danish) about your art work, and I have a nice international network of interesting and wonderful people that could possibly be interesting to get to know.

Countries I've Visited

Armenia, Austria, Serbia, Turkey

Countries I've Lived In

Denmark, France, Germany
