About Me


would like to exchange ideas with minds all over the world


a 32 year old guy who's currently residing in istanbul.. having completed degree in translation studies, i now work as a translator (no surprise).. i believe meat is murder therefore i do not consume animals.. nor do i drink milk or eat cheese or eggs..

living with stray animals, i hope, i will soon be able to host people too.


alive to defend others' right to life.. not scared to risk his own liberty for those who are not free..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i can show you around and drink beer or coffee (no milk) with you,

i can help you find vegan friendly food and cruelty-free cosmetics.. istanbul.


while i was living in greece, i once hosted my friend's couch friend as his place wasn't available at that time.


stray animals, rescuing insects, rescuing sea gulls, languages, writing, participating in outdoor activities..

Music, Movies, and Books

zamyatin: "mi"("we"), gogol: "shnnel" (the overcoat), nilüfer göle: "modern mahrem - medeniyet ve örtünme", henri charrière: "kelebek" ("butterfly"), elaine baldwin/brian longhurst/scott mcracken/miles ogborn/greg smith: "introducing cultural studies"..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i got lost...

Teach, Learn, Share

i sometimes come across an "animal lover" who "loves" animals also on her plate.. this is more like mania than affection.. not to mention that this is like eating people you are not familiar with while loving others because you are friends with them. this is nothing but discrimination against different species..
