My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ex-techie, ex-punk, ex-hippie. I studied engineering in Tampere, Finland. After dropping out of uni I rolled out my bicycle and spent a couple of years travelling around just squatting places and moving on. I also lived and worked from time to time in a couple of alternative economy communities and rainbow villages and joined volunteer projects around Europe but didn't stay fixed in any one place. After seven years I finally moved to Switzerland to live with my girlfriend(*) in a fairly normal, conformist way (maybe freeganism making an exception there) but I still need a lot of people around to meet and chat, to play music with, to play games with (board games mostly, roleplayers please invite me!) and for generally living happy!

(* lacking a better word, you may consider us married in pretty much the typical sense, just that we are not)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hitchhiking, hospitality exchange (hosting people, visiting people, the easiest way to participate in the gift economy stuff), dumpster diving, community living, volunteer work, playing and making music and music instruments
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Nothing, never was.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Broken clothes and unkempt hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
book: Bark Hopkins: Musical Instrument Design. Sorry, I really put a textbook as my favorite book. Finding this book ended one uncreative period in my life and brought me back to outside world at least a little bit.

movie: Radu Mihaileanu: Train de Vie. Identified myself with Schlomo the fool

music: Anything spontaneous and living, not big fan of canned music. If it has to be in cans then gypsy, folk, ska, but also chiptunes and tracker music
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Not in order of importance: Sleeping bag, backpack, bicycle, people, sun, darkness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Technical details, past conversation details, now lately I discovered the world of free online university courses so that adds here a more or less bi-monthly changing item from the list of [Philosophy/Theology, Programming/Mathematics, Music theory, Music performance, Acoustics]. Now trying jazz improvisation on a viola! This can't end well... (Wow! It did! I passed with a score of 70.04! A whole 0.04 above minimum passing grade (not that I would know what meaning passing or failing have here, but hey! Acceptance! I'm a junkie for that!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Digging other peoples trash for something useful
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The profile photo is cut just enough to hide the fact that I have no hair on top.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to meet up for a drink, a bicycle trip, playing games, making music (or just strangely harmonic noise), making music instruments, running around town, building a self sustained mobile/distributed ecosystem where to live in and travel the world at the same time or for dreaming about community living.

Also ask me if you need a place to stay in Schaffhausen!
(or contact me through BeWelcome I find that the existing hospitality exchange sites sometimes focus too much on places and not people. It is more fun hosting people who really would like to visit me and not only take contact because I happen to live near a tourist attraction. Also if you are travelling random like me it's actually the cool people you want to meet and it doesn't really matter in exactly which town they are based in.
