About Me

I currently work in a tech startup as a software engineer. Outside of my work, I have explored different interests. I love working on myself and learning more about the beauty of this world and different activities.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet people from around the world. To share and absorb different cultures. To open my mind about our differences and similarities.
