About Me

Ok! Let's know me more. I am a 34 years old Iranian who loves all cultures and countries. I generally live in Tehran but right now, I am living in Zurich since I joined University of Zurich to work on my PhD project. I am an open minded, easygoing, cheerful and social person. I do like biking, climbing and walking. In fact, I love nature in its all means: forest, sea, river and ... . Furthermore, I like most of sports such as football, tennis, volleyball and chess.
Moreover, my life is intertwined with science. While I am a PhD candidate of communication science at University of Tehran, I am working as a lecturer at Farhangiyan University. I do like reading books and magazines too. Of course, I have less time to do that now because I have to focus on my research and projects.
However, I think we can have some great time together playing chess or cards or discussing some social and political affairs :) In addition, I am a good listener and can play a role as your local tour leader as well! So. I you are coming Tehran, you can count on my hosting and helping to know this busy and crowded but interesting city.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe life is too short and we should use all of our opportunities to see the world and meet people. So, I think that CS provides us an excellent social platform to do that easily. As a matter of fact, I am here to make new friends while I extend my horizons by meeting them and visiting different cultures and countries. Furthermore, I am trying to experience new things and foster my knowledge as I can. I hope to have this chance to make it happen with you :)
