About Me


My mission is to dominate all hemispheres of the Earth. To learn at least 10 international languages, to play in a hard rock band and tour the world, and finally to be happy and find peace with myself.


I am Alex, Al to some, Mr Asgari to everyone else. I am fond of music, Capoeira, Taekwondo , international languages and travelling around the globe.
I want to live on the otherside of the world and experience life in all its forms and glories. I want to make a difference in this life, to be remembered positively. I enjoy swimming and athletics (although it has been some time since I did either of those activities!).
I enjoy meeting new people from all over the globe - making and uniting people of all ethnicities and creeds is the aim of the game, peeps!


To be happy, content... to do what I want when I want to. To socialise and meet other people.
I have many thoughts, most of them incoherent, so not worth mentioning here.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I donated money? I don't get what this part wants me to say....


I have had no experience so far, but that will change in the next year or so!


Music, musical instruments (I play many). Martial Arts, Capoeira, Brazilian culture. World affairs, (Some) Sports.... Food, drink and talk from around the world... the list is endless!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Saved a person's life. I don't want to go into details as another person died of a heart attack who I could not save.

I'm a nice guy who likes to help others, I don't know why, but I just do.
