About Me


DJ & 80's website moderator, introduction of the 80's spirit :)


I am doing my PhD at Hacettepe University on Turkish-Hungarian relations. Besides, I am a researcher at the same university. I've been broadcasting a radio show since 2001 and every Sunday I introduce the sounds of the 80's on a local radiostation. I like to share everything I know and have learned with the others. Listening to the music is not enough for me, that's why I'm playing! Almost a year I lived in Hungary and met the hospitality and the sincerity of the lovely Hungarian people. And I had the chance to travel around Europe. I think that made me more optimist in life and broaden my vision...I love the Hungarian realism on one side and the Turkish practical mind on the other side! :)


Referring to Dieter Bohlen's "You can win if you want" ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting new people for some coffee or drink!


I met with nice friends via CS in Hungary. Now we have good contacts. Besides, in Ankara I hosted a guy from Brazil and met two Hungarians and a Turkish lady living in the US for a coffee. I think the travellers comin' from Ankara do not want to receive messages from the locals unless they ask anything. It's a pity!..
