Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a Swede who has managed to live everywhere except Sweden for
the last 17 years. I lived in San Francisco for about six years
where I went to art school, then Luxembourg for a year and a half,
Glasgow for a year, Copenhagen for four months then Amsterdam for
five years then it was London for six months before going to
Cambridge and now I'm back in Amsterdam. In other words I've been
living abroad for quite a long time so I don't feel terribly
Swedish but I have retained my dashing Nordic looks.
I work with video games which is great because I'm a total game
nerd. I've loved games since I was a little kid and I wouldn't want
to change jobs for the world. In other words I take my job pretty
Although I already know a fair few people in the Dam I'm always up
for meeting new people, making new friends and maybe finding a bit
of romance too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well when I work I do cinematics for a local video games company
and on my time off I play heaps of games :P
Nah I'm not that one sided. I also read a lot. Admittedly mostly
Sci-Fi (big fan of Iain M Banks) and history books but I'm also
known to pick up a 'proper' book every once in a while. Generally
something by Will Self as he's not boring.
I love movies although it's been quite a while since I saw anything
that really excited me.
Greatest movie experience of my life: Saw Star Wars with my dad in
1977 and well it's all been down hill since then excitement
Worst movie experience of my life: Saw Episode I when it premiered
in San Francisco and have been unsuccessfully trying to erase it
from my memory ever since.
One thing I don't do is watch TV although I love some TV
I'm getting back into drawing again after a long break which is
good because I spend way to much time in front of the
In general I'm trying to widen my horizon and try out new things.
I've gotten myself a nice bike and I love cycling around town and
would love to go on longer trips eventually.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look a lot younger than I am.
Really. I'm not just being vain.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love rustic food like dark bread and bean soup and potatoes and
the like. Must be the Austrian in me. Ahh Austrian potato salad (no
freakin' mayo!), Saure Wurst, Griesnockerl Suppe, Marillen
Knodel... I'm getting hungry just writing this..
Books wise see above. SciFi. History. Trying to be
Movie wise think geek, like mega geek.
I like music but I've always been blessed with friends who are
music fanatics and thus make me listen to good stuff. Of course I
never bothered remembering any band names or titles of songs but I
do like it.
Concerts: are very loud and I generally get tired/bored after 20
minutes but sometimes it's brilliant.
In summation I enjoy games books movies parties food sci-fi fantasy history conversation
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the obvious stuff without which I would keel over and
die I can only think of one thing:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stuff I'm gonna do in the future and then not being quite as
excited when I do them. I'm a bit of a dreamer in general. Thinking
of stuff to do and then have someone else do it is the way forward
Sex. The cliche is that men think about it 25% of the time and I
reckon that's about right.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I just moved back to Amsterdam after being away for two and half
years so my agenda is wide open. On my one weekend so far I
reconnected with some friends over dinner and drinks and I imagine
I'll be doing lots more of that on future weekends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
'..Baby one more time' makes me cry and I don't know why.

You're intelligent and open minded. I seriously can't stand

I really want to learn Dutch properly this time so I'm also on the
look-out for someone to speak Dutch with (so not as a date thing
necessarily). In exchange I'll teach you Swedish :)
