Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
An eclectic Swedish chick who escaped the unheated attic of Europe
to live and work in one of the best cities in the world! I’d
describe myself as smart, with a big heart and a great sense of
humor – but perhaps a bit contradictory.
-A consummate thrill seeker, but with a degree in economics (and
yes, I enjoy both equally)
-Kick ass underground house DJ, but with season tickets to the
opera (I believe range makes for an interesting life)
-Can hold my own in intellectually demanding conversations, but I
also rock a six pack (I never understood why a sharp mind and a
hard body were considered mutually exclusive)
-Over educated, but find intelligence sometimes gets in the way
(stop analyzing and just do it)
-A bit wild, but highly organized (the only way I get everything
-Flamboyant avant garde dresser, but a rational thinker and low
maint (zero drama is key)
-Can interact in half a dozen languages, but I secretly enjoy being
the outsider (it gives certain, ahem, license…)
-Afraid of heights, but have a pilots license (I also tried bungy
jumping, but nothing helps)
Somehow, this all makes perfect sense to me…
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Daytime I help various tech startups get their act together on the
marketing front. Nighttime I like to deejay, dance or read.
"the world is my home, and mankind my family" is my motto. I’m
curious about it all - and have been fortunate enough to travel the
world extensively. Oh, the joy to see, hear, learn, smell, taste
the wondrous. And better yet, meet extraordinary and larger than
Physically, I’m pretty active including gymnastics, free running,
weight lifting, climbing, skiing and a range of recreational sports
– sailing windsurfing, scuba, flying, etc. Sitting still is
Although I like nature I’m definitely a city girl. I adore the
energy, intricacy and grit of a city. It always puzzled me that
people want to escape them. My idea of a vacation is Tokyo at rush
hour (not really, but quite fascinating nonetheless ;)
Oh, and I think dancing is the most fun you can have with your

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Living life like I mean it. I don't believe in faith. I prefer to
deliberately engineer my life to ensure that it doesn’t turn out to
be an ordinary one. So far, I’m pretty pleased with my handiwork -
but many more adventures still to be had!
Also, I’m really good at having frogs jump out of my mouth at the
most inopportune moments possible.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No idea, frankly. I’m told I can be intense, but that would hardly
be the first impression.

Books - a lot, as often as possible and just about everything.
Lately I have read some sci-fi, Greek classics, graphic novels and

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
-A good challenge
-A healthy body
Honorable mention - a passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Long term trends in society.
- Why so many people are dominated by their fears.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I’m not into ‘typical’ but clubbing would be a good bet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can honestly say I'm talented at absolutely nothing. All I’ve
learned involved massive amounts of work. On the upside, I've
realized that with determination I can do pretty much anything I

I respect your privacy, so respect mine. If you don't want to have
any profile pictures, fair enough - but do not ask for my email to
send them to. Either attach them in your message to me or send a
link to your online photo album (and if you don't have one already,
there are a million places on the web where you can create one -
will come in handy for you, promise!)
