I try to travel as much as I can to cure my wanderlust. I love meeting people from different places as it makes me feel like I have several relatives all around the world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Although at first I had hesitations about cs, now it's more like I want to travel for cs itself! After a few experiences, I realized that I had NO idea about seeing local life, and I found it amazing!

Music, Movies, and Books
I used to adore modern directors like Wong Kar Wai, Lars von Trier, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, Guy Ritchie, Darren Aronofsky, Fatih Akın, Jim Jarmusch etc. But for the last couple of years, I started to wonder the oldies and realized that they were indeed the goldies. I still like to watch modern directors, I actually watch everything I can get but it's a truth that I'm in love with Ingmar Bergman, Stanley Kubrick, Luis Buñuel, Krzysztof Kieslowski and definetely earlier works of Woody Allen. I also find so much deep in Iranian cinema as I'm in love Bahman Ghobadi, Asgar Ferhadi and Cafer Panahi. I'm also interested in Turkish cinema and will be happy to talk about it.
In terms of music... well let's put a shortcut:
Anyone who appreciates the song below may be my favorite friend among others.
Didn't work? We can agree on this too:
(Yes I'm that annoying person that has an interest in Persian stuff)
What I Can Share with Hosts
Willingness for a good conversation(especially for cinema and cultural shares) and promising a welcoming hosting in Istanbul.I may also bring you something special from Turkey.
I'm also eager to share some interesting but completely useless facts about computer science but to be honest I don't really know when to stop once I start.
