About Me

Palestinian Kiwi entrepreneur that probably spends too much time meeting people than working.

Passionate about all things food! Also love the occasional Shisha/hookah and good coffee.

Currently living and working in Yiwu, China! Will be based here for a few more years.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet some awesome locals! Really keen to embrace the culture and customs – can't beat local knowledge for that.

Always happy to meet up for a coffee first if you prefer.


Love playing pool (billiards) and swimming. Although I typically spend the majority of my time working on business or community charity projects.

Music, Movies, and Books

All time favorites: fringe, lost, friends, scrubs, person of interest, south park, wrecked, veronica mars

Currently reading up about the silk roads. Will try to visit a few of the old cities along the way.

Pretty easy when it comes to music. Happy to listen to anything new.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

New Zealand is still the best place I've been to in the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: bit of a tough one. I know a little about a lot. Maybe can teach you a thing or two about marketing?
Learn: I've always wanted to learn how to sail or surf.
Share: Food is definitely meant to be shared. From cooking to eating, sometimes cleaning too.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food? Conversation? Marketing/business advice? Ask and you shall receive.
