About Me


restoring peoples' faith in love


I like surprises. I like people who like surprises too. And I like surprising those people.

I also enjoy people who I disagree with. Love artists. I'm curious as a 6yr old. And I'll dance anywhere.


Happiness is an award for courage.
Effort is the wrong strategy for attaining goals.
The real world is wonderful, and a source of all wisdom you'll ever need.
Human nature is exactly what it's supposed to be.
Honesty beats bullshit - every time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I do the whole CS thing. Surf, host, parties, group travel. I love to connect different (willing) people and I tend to do that both when I travel and when I host.


It's been a blast ever since I joined! I'm doing the same stuff I was doing before joining CS, only now more often and with more people. CS has made a huge impact on my life and I made great new friends.


Plenty. I'm super curious and love to hear different people show me new ways of looking at old things. But to be a bit more precise: art, science and any overlapping ground. Alright, that's still a bit hazy. Err, fundamental physics and astronomy. Amateur art you usually see people making/performing on streets or in ways they decorate their apartments. Short stories. How stuff works. How people work. What makes people I care about tick.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living with Finns in Espoo, Finland for only two weeks - it's simply amazing how easily everyday people picked out what my closest friends never had the guts to tell me.

The Rainbow tribe. To quote a "brother": you'd never expect this is what it takes to remind you what really matters in life.

Teach, Learn, Share

To become who you want to be, you must first learn and accept who you are now. When you have a clear, denial free perspective of what you can and can not do, building the path from where you are to where you want to be is just a matter of engineering. And loads of courage it takes to walk that path all the way. This really works. Trust me ;-)
