Join Couchsurfing to see Kieto’s full profile.
Generally with a positive outlook on the world, I live in a world of chaos consisting of Salsa Rueda dancing, cooking food with friends, and rock climbing in between my Masters studies and remote work world. I moved to Helsinki in August 2021, and am looking to explore the city with you and learn about this place with you. I have German and American background, but have exposure to so much more. I look forward to long conversations over home-made meals, and a unique drink at the end of the day!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I started traveling for the places. Now I travel for the people. Couchsurfing is an excellent way to pursue that goal of meeting different people. Living centrally, I would love to share the blessings I have with anyone looking to pass through the Helsinki area, or just in need of a place to stay! More conversations with more people is the goal!
I tend to try many new things and really enjoy them. If it is an experiences that challenges my physical, cultural, or social resolve, chances are I will want to try it again or practice. I am always up for new "interests" and as an international traveler, that is almost a necessity.

Music, Movies, and Books
Afro-Celt Sound System are AWESOME. Reel Big Fish are a pump up band. Billy Joel for chill times. Riddick, Fast and Furious, Totoro, Spirited Away, The Lunchbox, are all top of my list for movies. Lord of the Rings, Name of the Wind, and the Belgariad Trilogy are must reads.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It was with a group, and I turned a bunch of un-trained freshmen who had never even SEEN snow before, into a mountain-peaking crew, willing to set up tents and campsites without guidance in the snow and dark.
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach- About my life, what I've done, whatever interests. Can teach Salsa Rueda as well!
Learn- Really anything is welcome. Especially things I have no knowledge about, or where you are more knowledgable than I am.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Mindfullness- I can lead a mindfullness session to further your awareness of yourself and the world around you.
Music and Dance- Love doing both with anybody.
A Smile- A day does not go by without good times. Happiness is my resting state.
Conversation- Travel and Interest in People has created an interest in Conversation that I would love to share with people.
Security- I am CPR/AED Certified.
A New Perspective- My parents are multi-ethnic, as am I. I will try to bring new thoughts around any ideas that come my way.
