About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To stop having a mission. :)

ABOUT ME

Well, I am a lot into music. I love singing and jamming with other people. Recently I also discovered potential of movement and body work. I try to find answers to life beyond the ones, which my mind has to offer.
I try to keep a positive outlook on life and welcome any situation I find myself in.
I enjoy a good conversation with friendly people and love to be inspired by various life-circumstances, people live in.
I give my best to meet any moment new and to ignore my mind, which keeps on putting people into shelves:)
This makes life much more interesting and enjoyable.

PHILOSOPHY

Basically, I like getting into something and staying with it for a while. However, its hard to stay disciplined. Teaching someone else, learning from each other, or working together on anything can be very nice.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been couchsurfing in Istanbul for a month. I really enjoyed it. Back home I could not offer much couchsurfing because I simply have one small room.

Interests

I am very much into music. I play saxophone, guitar, piano and flute. I have been working with a loop station for quite a while. In summertime I play out on the streets. So anyone who is interested in productive music-making or simply having a relaxed session is welcome. I also have been singing a lot in my life. I would love to start an a-capella project. Next to music a like learning a language (at the moment Turkish). Sport wise I do yoga, kitesurfing and other small artistic stuff. Since a year now I have been dancing Swing ( Lindy Hop). I just started learning to dance Blues.
I have been getting into bodywork. Contact Improvisation is one of them. I also meditate.

Music, Movies & Books

Music:
First of all I think there is good music in any kind of area, let it be electro or gothic music.
I prefer some Jazz, Bossa Nova and A-Capella. But actually it is difficult to narrow it down to something. At the moment I am interested in singing musicians like Camille, Sophie Hunger, Sarah Blasko, Beady Belle. I also listen to Swing music and some Electronic stuff.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Having experienced a deep meditative state was quite amazing. Incredible how perception changes, once you just sit in silence for a while.

Teach, Learn, Share

Ok, I can share music knowledge. As mentioned above playing saxophone, piano or guitar. I do some artistic stuff like diabolo, devil stick or juggling. I love singing especially in a small group (preferably a capella). At last it would be great to do improvisation theatre.
Also I can teach some meditation, swing dancing and contact improvisation. Or kitesurfing.
