About Me


to see what the world has to offer and all the wonderful people in it.


Easy going, open minded and relaxed. Strange in a good way, lazy in a bad way, abnormal in a normal way.

I can't be without music. I like going to concerts. See my 'Interests' to know more about me.


sometimes I feel lost and sometimes I know all the world secrets but I guess I just want to do whatever makes me happy and that can be a lot of different things. I´m not rushing into being a grown up and I´m very far from being a material boy. Simple things in life can sometimes be the most important.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS is a perfect chance to get to know different places from the local´s point of view.


Hosted by few in Europe and USA and I hosted few in Reykjavik and it was great! (too many "and" in that sentence:)


I love to travel. I need to move around, I need to see new things. I love music and I play the guitar and sing in my band Volcano Victims ( I like: to take a bath, icecream, friends, travelling, music festivals, concerts, dancing to good music, exotic food, good movies, good weather, thunderstorms, beer, lying in parks and so many other things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

got a snake around my neck in Morocco. Cooked a hamburger in the dark on a top of a mountain in Iceland. Seen Alcatraz. Seen amazing thunderstorms in Canada and USA. Been freezing cold in a tent by Lake Ontario and seen the brightest stars above me. Seen many great concerts, like Whitest Boy Alive (that explains my nick name).

I need to see and do more amazing things!
