About Me

I am a passionate person. Into art and science. I recently left behind more than a decade of physics practice to pursue photography and videography. I have lot's of travelling and hitchhiking experience from the time I was in my home country Iran. I'm looking to connect with interesting people. So hit me up if you have some stories to tell.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am one of the early users of this website. I joined before the website was commercialized. I primarily wanted to meet foreigners to practice English. I met so many crazy souls here that made me stay active here.


Mives, Musics particularly jazz, and other kinds of art basically haha.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm so interested in rock music. My favorite bands are Pink Floyd , Mono (a Japanese band), The doors, Nirvana... I also listen to all the other genres of music. I like Zebignew Preisner so much and Motzart is my favorite classic composer. And most recently Jazz!! Coltrane! Oh man I wish I was him!!
