_________ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ______

I dont know what to say about "myself"
I am an artist living in Istanbul

Maybe those things I made could give an idea about me :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I used to travel since I am 23 and Couchurfing was always there! :)


well, if I would not study painting, I would like to study theatre for sure!
thats why I acted in a theatre club. 2 years as a performer and one year worked in the backstage. I love theatre! One of my regrets is about not becaming to an actress

I like cinema as well..well mostly watching(except few funny short movies that me and my friends made)

I like to eat and cook -I experienced working as a cook in Denmark for 18 months-

listening music is part of my life - thats also might sounds like an survey answer:) but it is- I like singing also. I have a big(not very big) casette tape archive. Haha! I like casettes

I like old stuff. Flea Markets great places to me to visit

besides, I like
making "own" thing and making my own sketchbooks,
vacuum cleaners' click sound when it took the dust
and some other things.
