About Me


I work as an auditor, sometimes i go out of city for work purposes.


I work in a bank as an internal auditor. But this the most boring side of my life.. I like making new friends to learn something from them.. And taking photograph is the most exciting part of my life..

And here also some of my photos and videos which can give some clues about me..

I deal with short movies and documentaries. I deal with politics. I really like learning new languages and culture.


Sharing makes me rich not poor..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think sharing is the most beautiful thing in the world. Sharing knowledge, ideas, cultures and also couchs. So i am here to help someone who comes to our country by sharing and also to meet someone like me when i go abroad..


Up to now, we hosted many times and all was a great experience for me. We learned many things from my guests and rediscovered the city which we are living in.. So i want to repeat this experience as much as i can do..


Taking photograph, reading travel magazines, following people who are travelling around the world. Documentaries and short movies..
