About Me

Born in Istanbul🇹🇷, based in New York🇺🇸. Currently traveling 🌎

I am an entrepreneur, public speaker, traveller, author, TEDX speaker and an English tutor.

Publishing 8 books on Entrepreneurship, My Travel Memoirs, Learning English, Crowdfunding and Public Speaking, I have my own soft skills training company called ''Bosphorus Story House'', delivering global trainings and seminars with a team of 20 people. I have delivered more than 400 trainings and seminars in my professional career, mainly focusing on the topics of entrepreneurship, public speaking, english teaching and traveling.

Having been to 100+ countries, my dream is to work globally, while contributing to making the world a better place.

I speak Turkish & English fluently, also French, German and Spanish, meanwhile learning Chinese, Italian and Russian this year.

I am a massive travel enthusiast, a karaoke singer and a big fan of video games.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have been to more than 80+ countries so far.

The aim is to travel all possible countries, experience, share and make the world a little bit of a better palce.

What makes these trips beautiful is the experiences we share on the way.

I think Couchsurfing is a great platform to share those experiences.
