About Me

"If you’ve ever met a Finn, chances are they’ve mentioned the reserved nature of their countrymen. Be not afraid – we’re not taciturn brutes. Finns are talkative and hospitable, but the myth of the withdrawn Finn is still alive and well inside Finland. And Finns, with their self-deprecating wit, will be the first to let foreigners in on it. An example of a Finnish joke: 'An introverted Finn looks at his shoes when talking to you; an extroverted Finn looks at your shoes'".

Young Finnish feller living spontaneous life in Helsinki having relocated to the capital after a long adventure in rural and not-as-rural communities.

Currently gaining experience in the hospitality industry before moving to Oslo, Norway for university studies in August 2017.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Well, having lived in many places in Finland, having changed schools, ice hockey teams, neighbourhoods and so on, I've always been lucky enough to have been able to surround myself with amazing people. International education and hobbies have gotten me friends from way over a dozen of countries.

I will obviously be trying to maintain this by broadening my horizons through diverse social channels – in this case Couchsurfing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm very open when it comes to music. My daily mix mostly consists of electronic music and lounge tunes though. As my favorite artists I'd name the trance legends of Above & Beyond.

My favorite movie has to be the ever so inspiring Limitless starred by Bradley Cooper & co.

I'm trying to read the Economist as often as I can. Biographies of football players are probably the only books that aren't gaining dust on my shelves right now.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gone from sauna to ice cold water - something I recommend doing (at your own risk)! Took a toboggan down from the Great Wall. Went to the Far East three times in a year - all solo.

Teach, Learn, Share

If learning languages gets old (not for me at least) I can teach you how to beatbox!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Heaps of young energy and intellectual curiosity, a Nordic viewpoint to bring to conversations and hopefully some of my local delicacies!
