A long time member of hospitality club, now moved to CS. Living with my lovely wife, Burcu, in London where I do research on and teach data visualization in a London university (computer related stuff) and Burcu is a product designer.
Burcu and I are both easy-going, social people, who enjoys meeting people, traveling and going out. My new hobby recently is to taste all the different beers I can find in the bars.
I am busy with doing research and Burcu is into doing all sorts of handicraft and designs these days. We just moved to London after several years in Bergen, Norway. We are trying to get used to the big city.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Just moved to London to a small flat (aren't they all small) do not know if we can host anyone at the moment -- we'll see..
Have hosted many people (around 100, maybe) with my friends and manage to stay at a couple of places when I was traveling. But this was all done in hospitality club, so I am still fresh here. All this couch surfing idea is great, people has to contact more, talk more, do more things together, and in real life, not only on the internet.
I practically like anything interesting. I like talking to other people and discussing things. I like being outside, whether in the city or the mountains, doesn't matter.
Music, Movies, and Books
Electronic and jazz, or a mix of both. I do like reading, mainly novels, some all time favorites: Hesse, Kafka, Gombrowicz, Dostoyevski, Ambjornsen and many more.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
traveling through the Balkans. the crazy guca festival, although I can't say I enjoyed each part of it, but it was an experience. all the volcanic activity at Yellowstone.
Teach, Learn, Share
Can share a lot of information about Turkey and Norway (lived there several years), specially many insider tips for Istanbul and Bergen. Burcu is cooking new recipes all the time and can share some secrets with you. I was instructing photography for a while and can teach you some, but I am more the old school photographer, still holding on to the b/w film.
