About Me

I'm an easy going guy, who likes to laugh and share stories with friends. I always listen to music wherever I go. I love to cook even if I'm not very good at it. But I love to try and discover new stuff in life, so that's why I joined that website. I hope this will make me meet more people and travel more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Ever since my first trip to Belgium, I fell in love with this idea of "going on a trip and meet new people". I hope CS will help me continue doing this.


I love everything about music. The melodies, the poetry, the composition. I play piano since age 9 and I still do today. I practice the drums whenever I can and I think I can play two or three chords on the guitar. I've decided that one day, I'll become a DJ. When? I don't know. But I will.

I also love the different dishes on this planet. Everytime I get the chance of trying a new plate, I do it. Even if it looks bizarre. It's like a challenge everytime. And it's fun.

Music, Movies, and Books

MUSIC -- We can talk about music for hours. I absolutely love music. From old rock sounds of the 70s to the electro indie stuff of today, I love it all. Even some weird stuff. Just to name a few:
- The Beatles (my all-time favorite band), Metric, Justice, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Crystal Castles, Metallica, System of a Down, Jethro Tull, The Who, Rolling Stones, Gorillaz, No Doubt, Arcade Fire, etc.

MOVIES -- I'm a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino's films, good dramas and classic comedies. Some of my favorite films are: Fight Club, Kill Bill, Superbad, Anchorman, Happy Gilmore, Dumb & Dumber (my favorite comedy) Reservoir Dogs, V for Vendetta, Black Swan, Run Lola Run, 8 Mile. There are more, but I can't remember them all right now.

BOOKS -- I'm not a huge book reader, but I enjoy reading biographies or anecdotal books. However, I have read some novels and my favorites were: Of Mice & Men, Fahrenheit 451, Blindness and some french novels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In the US, I liked New York's Time Square, Miami Beach, Las Vegas' partying vibe. Amazing times.

In Europe, I only went to Belgium. I loved the people there. So generous and fun. Great beer drinkers too!

And Lebanon, I really miss it. I hope I can visit Beirut again soon.
