Always seek to try new things..
I love randomness, meeting new folks, and experiencing something new.
I've been living for a little while in the US. (First Michigan then Western Massachusetts.)
I've also lived for a few months in Boston, New York, Berlin, and London.
I was raised bilingual (French & Arabic),and I am fluent in English. in "LinkedIn" terms... I'm conversational in German and Spanish. Languages aside. I've formally studied Computer Science.
Laugh, explore, and be open-minded.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
My first CouchSurfing experience was amazing. It was in Toronto, with the sweetest person ever, Liz. I spent Christmas with my host..lovely memories. I've CouchSurfed at other spots in the US and Europe. I've always had such a great time with my host. When traveling, I enjoy meeting new people.. So I really like that about CouchSurfing.
Another cool story... I was at a conference in Phoenix and booked my flight back from Vegas. I had no clue how I was going to get from one place to the other... And again, CouchSurfing did its magic. I -- at the very last minute -- joined a couple of CouchSurfers who happened to be going through that exact route as part of their West coast road trip. The trip was a blast, and I am to this day still in touch with Sina and Sascha.
I am pretty outgoing. I like dancing. But I am also up for chilling at home with a group of friends having great conversations.
I'm sort of getting started with Photography. (check my Flickr account)
I'm more of a science/tech person... so this past year I decided to take an Art History and Film Studies class. Loved it. So I'm up for checking out Museums and watching a really cool Movie.
