About Me

Ex-journalist & now advisor

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Language and cultural exchange (Arabic, German)


Language exchange, long term friendship

Music, Movies, and Books

So much in love with US Western and Lebanese&Egyptian&Iranian movies. Khalil Gibran & Nagib Mahfouz and Amin Malouf fans are especially welcome.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can help with Turkish and English. I am into investment funds & I can share my expertise on that. I like to talk about finance & economy &culture but not politics.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can be a good company for those who are willing to know more about Istanbul and Turkey. Practicing Arabic and German is a top priority but welcoming other encounters as well. Foreigners definitely have hard to times to find a decently English-speaking local to give them a better understanding of the local culture and dynamics. If you only want to walk around major touristic landmarks to take some photos, than I may not be the best person lol
