  • Description


    Hello, world! Slovenian-Norwegian guy here, involved in several ventures of life, business and global development. Existence is magic, so let's embrace its endless potential as a formidable source of experience, challenge and wisdom. I love to combine symbiotic exchange of resources with making new friends from all over, building networks, blessing and being blessed by those I'm privileged to know.

    I cultivate an international, flexible lifestyle and try to avoid dull moments and sedentarism. Both running business(es) and working with community services, I manage to fill my time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm sure we can both learn a lot from each other and enjoy a symbiotically beneficial cooperation. I have lots of linguistic, theoretical, administrative and social resources I gladly share, just as I expect you to be willing to teach me whatever you come here with that I don't know how to do. Let's indulge in the exchange!

  • Help


    I'll be blunt and pragmatic: I look for people with practical skillsets, particularly those incorporable in house renovation: carpenters, electricians, plumbers, stonemasons and just general handymen, people who enjoy beautifying and modernising a home. You don't have to be a licensed professional, but you need at least some kind of competence and relevant experience in said field. Artists, decorators, designers and so forth are welcome too. Basically anything that can benefit the state and value of a property, the most important thing is that you know your stuff.

    People knowing how to create and manage a basic company website also most welcome!

    The tasks expected depend greatly on your capabilities; but keywords are house renovation, gardening/landscaping, help with housework, everyday agenda completion and so forth, around my home on a domestic basis, although there can be requests of going elsewhere and joining me on business- and work-related trips and so forth -- if you are up for a bit of variety and want to see more of Norway. We'll adapt the specifics to what you can and feel motivated to do, the core element is whether you can make my life easier, or not, with what you bring to the table. I'm very easy-going and open to synchronize this to the fullest, to benefit us both/all. And most importantly, I see you as a person and would love to get to know who you truly are, you are never just a "workawayer" to me, but a guest and friend above anything.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Oslo is a modern capital, lots to do. Tram/metro/bus lines are a few minutes' walking distance from the house. City forest also very close by, with lakes, sporting facilities, you name it. It's a "green" city, surrounded by nature.
