About Me

- in a partnership
- I'm very much a do-it-yourself person: I travel alone, I like to make the things I wear & use, I think for myself and dislike when people say "can't"
-Am currently studying Middle Eastern Studies and Society and Environment at UC Berkeley. My goal in my educational journey is to use my knowledge carefully and consciously to build a more harmonious, informed, respectful and healthy world... still figuring out how though.

I'm flexible and appreciate every experience with another human but prefer:
late night philosophical discussions, making or listening to live music, making things rather than buying; hike/climb/exploring and comfy over classy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The world has always had my back and it is important for me to remain apart of that positive energy and return the kindness I have always received.


An eclectic soul with several passions, I dabble in rock climbing, hiking, chess, gardening, healing, movement, stillness, art/drawing/painting, singing, writing, piano and what ever else I feel like doing in that moment

  • arts
  • books
  • singing
  • documentaries
  • flying
  • reading
  • painting
  • drawing
  • music
  • backpacking
  • rock climbing
  • languages
  • laughing
  • turkish food
  • environmentalism
  • cool graphic arts posters

Any book by Nabokov

Music... I appreciate all beats, harmonies, cadences and notes
