About Me


I'm am soul searching for that special sound.


Hey there, I'm an American guy, free-spirited backpacker around Europe who is searching for that special home and sound. I'm a musician, pianist, composer, producer & engineer. If you'd like to find out more about me feel free to visit my webpage @:

I am 28 years old and am currently in Stockholm, Sweden.

Many people ask me why I don't have any testimonials from other hosts, and that can be easily explained. I have not couchsurfed with anybody on before.

I have couchsurfed dozens of times with friends, and new acquaintances introduced to me by friends. I have references if you need me to provide you with them, no problem at all.

So please, give a guy a chance. :-)





I am a very bottom-lined, to the point kind of person. I don't believe in bullshit, I don't want people to talk bullshit to me either. If you can't be real and legit, don't even bother trying to pull a fast one on me, because I am faster than you. :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mostly what happens to me is that I have friends from Facebook who know somebody in Europe and they give me friend suggestions to those European people. Then I get in touch with them, tell them about myself, what I'm doing and include a coffee invitation in the message.

I'm generally a clean person, very respectful and always offer to make breakfast or cook dinner for my hosts just to say thank you for the hospitality.

I've never had a bad experience. ever.


Music, obviously. Weight lifting, Yoga, Cycling, Asian food (mostly sushi). Photography, drawing, painting, general art stuff. I love to read travel books, and mostly non-fiction.

Truly my interests are far and wide, but these are a few examples.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite types of music are extreme metal (black/death/grind/speed/etc.), Classical, Romantic and Baroque, electronica (including most of it's sub-genres, especially hard house electro), and more.

for books I generally like non-fiction, language learners and bathroom readers.

for movies I'm not into chick flicks and I lean towards more Sci-Fi and Horror.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteered in Iceland on an organic farm for 2 weeks in east Iceland called Fljótsdalshérað. The farm was called Vallanes. It was cold, often rainy, but beautiful. I wouldn't have traded that experience for any other. EVER.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to record, produce and engineer music with Ableton Live, Cakewalk Sonar and Garageband. I can also teach you how to bartend and speak a little Norwegian.
