About Me

An open-minded gay guy from Helsinki living with my fiancé and our friend.

I am studying geosciences at the University of Helsinki. I also have another master's degree in East Asian studies with Japan being my main focus area.

At the moment, I'm on exchange in La Rochelle, France so cannot host at this time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people, see new places, and discover the world!


I like to try everything new at least once and always ready for an adventure:).
