About Me

I grew up in Iran and later moved to the US, where I currently live and work.

I'm passionate about life, this planet, and its people. My love of traveling started at an early age. I took a solo trip to visit family in southern parts of Iran at age 7. I still remember the thrill and excitement of that trip :)

Living in California, I'm an avid ocean lover and camper. I plan my trips around nature activities. That being said, I'm an advocate for mother nature and follow the principles of "Leave No Trace." From remote wilderness areas to local parks and even public beaches, I try to minimize my impact on the planet and be a responsible traveler.

I love to meet local people and learn about their stories. I don't care where you come from or what you do, but I do care about how you treat others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm new to CS and heard so many positive stories from my friends. I hope to experience the same, learn about new cultures, and exchange memorable experiences.

I also like to participate in volunteering opportunities and find new ways to engage with local communities.

Please do not message me if you have anything else in mind. I'm not here to hook up or have sex.
