About Me

Working in the realm of mental health, I have come to enjoy the little things in life. I used to work as an engineer but change the course of my life and now studying as well as working. Writing is something I also enjoy - and I wrote a book! Also, sensitive topics are my forte as it’s difficult to have some discussions in this country but I think it all starts with a conversation regardless of one’s beliefs. That is how we connect and build respect for one another.

Traveling is important to me, even though I might not get enough time for it due to work, I can live through the couchsurfing community and find solace in talking with people I host. (Since I’m living with my parents now, shoot a message if you want to stay, and I’ll check, I can’t host those who don’t have any reviews unfortunately)

Hoping to meet new and interesting people, as well as traveling local parts of the country and the eastern world.

Outside of that, I enjoy movies (I really find value in watching movies and can discuss them in detail), reading, writing, and discussing ideas and creativity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet unique and interesting people and listen to stories from around the world. Additionally, I want to be able to assist people looking for a place to stay and provide a more personalized experience when I can. I think Coushsurfing is a way for people to connect in a much deeper way than they can at a meetup or a hangout.

Teach, Learn, Share

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have a car so if I have the time, I can help you see the city and experience the highs, the lows, the sides, the centers.. whatever you want.

I can talk about various topics, anywhere from movies and TV shows, space and cosmos, the renaissance and art to gender equality and making the world a better place. I really find value in communicating with others, sharing ideas and simply sharing stories. The more you realize that we all belong to the same world, the more human you become.
