About Me

Vaccinated. Recently moved to the San Francisco area. I have gone through a few transitions in life, from scientist to graphic designer to software engineer. When not working, I like to go for a run, rock climbing or read a book. Trying to re-discover my love for calligraphy these days.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Host and stay with fellow travel enthusiasts. Share my space, meet new people, learn about different cultures and make new friends. And also to improve my Spanish

Music, Movies, and Books

60's 70's rock music and jazz. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Aerosmith, The Who, Chet Baker, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz and the usual stuff.

I like offbeat movies, conversational style and those which explore the mundane things in life. Before Sunrise, Paterson, The Man from Earth, Woody Allen's movies.

Rate at which I buy books is higher than the rate at which I read them. I usually prefer non fiction and travel adventures. Big fan of Gerald Durrell's work.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Did a US coast to coast road trip a couple years ago; driving through deserts, snow storms and loads of beautiful destinations.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you a few tricks about night photography and photography in general (IG: @maaquib). Always curious about learning new things, a food recipe, how to curse in a new language :) and more.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My generosity, my food, my books, my stories.
