About Me


Senior Scientist


I'm a friendly fellow. I like clever discussions. I'm helpful.


I'm curious, but I'm a little scared of too much stupidity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can offer my daughters room. She lives by herself now. Good conditions in a nice appartment.

You should be able to speak English, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian or Spanish.


I've had people living here during the COP15 (2009) and other events. It was interesting for all of us. Later I've met very nice people and also a few odd types.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm not happy for the following, but experience has forced me:

Please tell me in your request what purpose you have for the visit to Copenhagen.

Will you stay longer than the time you request?

If you are not sure to be able to show just a normal respect, then do not send a request.

In your request, please write the word zonker.

If you consider Couchsurfing as a cheap alternative to a hostel or a hotel, then do not send me a request.

In your request, please write dates and time in international standard notation. Mistakes are common!
