About Me

I'm a student living in Oslo. My biggest passion has always been for music, mostly as a listener but I also play myself. Currently studying to become a teacher.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Great experience with couchsurifing so far. Hanging out with new people in Oslo and sharing my flat is really enjoyable!


I study Norwegian so that I can teach high school level students. I've always loved playing with language, words and phrases.

Picked up the guitar when I was 6 years old and played on and off since then. The performative and creative side of music is something I try to cultivate more nowadays, previously I have mostly been a listener!

And even though I'm not very good, I love dancing and would love to try and learn different ways of dancing!

Music, Movies, and Books

Lots of different stuff, but I'm open to anything as long as it's good. Atm listening alot to jazz, afrobeat and chill stuff in general

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I need to flesh this out abit more, but my best experiences so far have been in nature. I remember I went on one of my first camping trips in the forest with a friend many years ago. In the night we went skinnydipping while a thin fog was hanging over the water under a full moon, and the trees made a wall surrounding us at all sides. Looking down at the deep, dark water that looked to be anywhere from one to a hundred meters away made me feel the most incredible feeling I had ever felt at that point, truly I was nowhere yet more in the now than I ever had been. This has to be one of my best experiences. Although I have seen some 'amazing' things and had incredible experiences in very different ways afterwards, I would still pick out this one moment.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can definitely teach my language if there is any real desire to learn Norwegian!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I think of myself as a mild, positive guy very much into conversation and I hope I can be an interesting conversation partner! I can also cook and clean just fine and I love going on long walks with people to get to know them better or just celebrate the beautiful fact that we are alive, here and now.

Countries I’ve Lived In

Norway, South Korea
