About Me


Love photography, travel, reading, and movies. Married with two cats and no kids. Grew up in Syria but been living in the US for almost 20 years. I"m hoping that in the next stage of my life I will do a lot more international travel so CouchSurfing, Air BNB, and greeters sounded like a great idea.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just started with CS. For the time being, I do not have a couch. But I can meet with surfers for coffee or dinner. Happy to give tips and show people around if time allows. I'm hoping that others around the world could do the same for me.
