Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a filmmaker, and empathy is everything to me. Every person I meet open up a brand new world in my mind even if I've already been interested in their culture.

Instead of touristic places, I'd love to explore the city with locals where they usually go and take little notice around. I think those areas are reflecting more about the places than the others.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have a small apartment literally in the city center.
Surrounded by cafes, shops, bars, clubs. And still the neighborhood is quite silent.

I have a single bed and a big couch. You can choose as you'd like.

I can take you to places that you can have a nice view or a fun night out with my friends. Been living in Istanbul for 10 years, so I can actually help you feel like you've been here a several times.
