About Me

I grew up with a Canadian Christian mother and an Egyptian Muslim father. So I always lived in an environment full of differences.

I have been living in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sapporo, Shanghai, Taipei, Tainan and Chiang Mai. Usually when I stay in some place it is between 6 month up to 18 month to have the time to absorb the language and the culture. Some people call it slow travelling, but for me it is more than a word. For me when I go to a new place it feel like a new life will begin and this make me feel alive.

I graduate from a master degree in finance and also I keep trading the forex market everyday as a sideline. I also teach languages and rock climbing and can work every place where I can make people happy.

Those are some facts about me, if you want to know more just meet me and you will know or read some reviews about me.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I love to meet new people. I learn so much from the people around me and in return I try to give the best of me. I think that Couchsurfing is a great project to help to put down the intercultural barriers.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-Usually amazing things happen when we didn't have plan right ? but when the amazing things happen it look like we plan it ? so it happen often but one of my last really amazing moment was to sleep with 2 of my best friends on the great wall. We climb on one of those guard tower and enjoying a cold Tsing Dao beer with a beautiful sunset. Chatting all night and watching the stars with a clear sky and next morning enjoying a beautiful sunrise with a mango breakfast that we forget in our bag. Nothing was plan but everything look like it was written somewhere.

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't possess anything, but I give my time. I think to give your time to someone is still one of the must beautiful gift you can give.

I can teach you English, French, Chinese, Thai and basic Arabic.
I can also teach you Rock Climbing, Yoga, Meditation.

Basically I can share everything I have with you.
