About Me


Msc. Master of Puppets


I am a business administration graduate from Turkey and will be studying Master in Management at the University of Mannheim for the following two years. I completed my bachelors degree with high honors at Ege University. During my studies I was able to study at Justus Liebig Universität Giessen for two semesters as an ERASMUS exchange student.

I work voluntarily for the Educational Volunteers Foundation of Turkey (TEGV) since September 2013 and help primary school children to be aware of their own skills and creativity as well as improve their social skills.

I am a non-smoker, only sometimes drink alcohol. I try to eat and live healthy ;).


People are the only ones who are responsible for their lives. Before accusing the others, think again if you show adequate effort.

Show respect to the nature and humanity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I cannot be classified as a person who travels a lot but this does not imply that I do not like travelling. I travelled all around Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Marburg, Kassel, Frankfurt, Munchen) and saw a few places in Netherlands (Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Eindhoven) and stayed in several hostels and houses of friends.




Since I am an ex-sporter (swimmer), I am interested in sports. Although I can swim, play football, table soccer, a little bit basketball and table tennis, I am always open to try new things and besides, I can watch and talk about almost all kinds of it including cycling, american football, tennis, snooker, dart etc :).

History, politics and sociology compose one of my other interest. I have a professional education at neither of these sciences and disciplines, however I like to read, talk about and discuss them.

Science and technology are the fields that I am always an enthusiast of. I try to follow the developments as much as I can. I also have very basic programming skills in c and javascript.

Music. I like listening music and playing bass. It has been a long time though last time I played it seiously.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending New Year's Eve in Amsterdam, on the roof of an apartment building, under the hundreds of firecrackers.
