About Me

Love to cook for friends, to have good conversations with people, to put my mind to work (doing a research master philosophy after a bachelor of physics), to see (and sometimes make) movies/art, to be in nature (hiking, wildcamping), to have a beer, to meet new people and cultures and to be sportive (soccer, swimming, running).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people. And because I thought about couchsurfing in Iran. Now I'm moving to Brussels after the summer, so I would like to go there early and to check out housing, maybe a place to work and get to know the city already a bit.

Music, Movies, and Books

Down by Law by Jim Jarmusch, movies of Abbas Kiarostami. Werckmeister Harmonies. Mulholland Drive.
One of my favourite books is 'The heart of a lonely hunter', I also like the book 'Americanah' of Ngozi Adichie. The russian writer Daniil Charms.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Iran to act in an Iranian-American documentary although i'm not an actor. I was a look-a-like of the woman that was the subject of the documentary therefore I could go there. I have spent a month in Iran, being only with Iranian people and really getting to know the country, and it was amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Explain something about physics?
I always like to join when people are playing some soccer :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook a lovely vegetarian meal and I always like to have a good conversation about a lot of different subjects!

Bosnia and Herzegovina, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Norway, Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey, United States
