About Me


"The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!"


I do fantastic, artistic face painting for adults and kids, direct theater and also do some marketing for theater and dance performance companies. I love to meet new people and learn about other cultures, and just have amazing experiences in general. I'm easy-going, open-minded and potty-trained too!

Live and let live I suppose. Reach for something higher and nobler, question everything, search for meaning everywhere, have fun while doing it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have so far hosted two not partial to Germany, thinking perhaps Germany is partial to me! Also hosted from Turkey and attended some meet-up groups.


Enjoyed an amazing couple of weeks with Neslihan Ozdemir in Turkey in 2010, who since then has couchsurfed here in NY on my couch for one month, and then became a permanent roommate for over a year. She is now one of my very closest friends.


Have lately taken an interest in being outside and finding natural beauty in the city....going for runs and walks, swimming and theater, hanging out with friends and having a few drinks, museums and architectural sites, eating really great food, reading, Dancing, annoying my siblings,
cooking, worrying my mother, yoga and traveling, not necessarily in that order.
