About Me


I was born in Iran but raised in the states. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and now I'm a fourth year medical student at MSU.


"We are visitors on this planet. We are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most. During that period, we must try to do something good, something useful, with our lives. If you contribute to other people's happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life." ~Dalai Lama

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Awesome. I've been fortunate enough to be hosted by amazing hosts in Spain, Italy, Morocco and Mexico in addition to meeting up with people in Lebanon.


I love any and all sports although I don't promise to be good at any of them. I love to travel, hike, meet people, play outside, movies, books, long discussions, frolicking, exploring. I love to laugh and enjoy meeting new people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like movies that really make you think and action and comedy movies. I'm not a fan of "chick flicks." I really like reading but don't get the chance to with school as much as I do, but when I do get the chance I like to read books I can learn from, usually non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rafting class 5 rapids down a part of the Nile in Uganda

Teach, Learn, Share

I feel like there is something to learn from everyone so I look forward to meeting and learning from as many people as I can!
