About Me


Travel whenever possible and keep meeting people from different cultures.


Travel is a way of life for me, and it all began at an early age. I did a lot of traveling in the US, Canada and Western Europe growing up, and then decided to move to Austria at 14. Lived in Salzburg for three years, back in the states for two and then studied at the University of Vienna for one year. After graduating from Georgetown University, I started a tour company specialized in travel to Croatia, Slovenia and BiH. After 6 years in the travel industry, I decided to go to law school. Now, I'm a licensed attorney that prefers to remain a student than get stuck in the "real world." Who knows what's next?

I love different cultures and foreign languages, and I have friends scattered around the world. I also love showing people new things, so I'm happy to at least meet up for a drink and do some touring here in NC.


Live life and enjoy. I'm part Lebanese, and I've learned a lot from the great people there. Being hospitable, remembering manners, having fun, and living life to the fullest are essential.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting new people is always an adventure, and what better way? I used to run tours in foreign countries for a living, so it's always exciting to actually get to show someone around my home base.


So far, I've hosted a several CSers, and I've surfed once, but my favorite has just been meeting the great CSers I've come across all over the world.


Travel, Cooking, Foreign Languages, Writing, History, Music, you name it, I probably at least have some interest in it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got ordained over the Internet and performed my cousin's wedding ceremony, then did the same for a good friend and fellow CSer a couple years later, but that's just one of the amazing experiences life has thrown my way.
