About Me


Travel the world! I'm climbing Mt Blanc beginning of September!


I like challenges, adventures, going to new places and trying new things, I LOVE traveling. One day I'd like to quit my job/take an extended leave and travel the world for a while.


live each day as your last
just do it
jump in, head first

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


just getting started; offering a couch and a bed!
I mostly surf since I haven't received many requests here in Saudi. Not too easy getting a tourist visa.

Great so far! From Doha, Qatar when I had to attend an event and I met my host(ess) Lydia as well as fellow surfer Rachid and other members of the Doha CS community; to Zanzibar, Tanzania with Juma Carlos - he showed me what the island had to offer and I did everything there is to be done on the island with the little time I had. Hanging out with David in Bahrain and Phoebe in Singapore, and last but not least, New Year's Eve in Sydney with Sofia & co! Great night with unbelievable fireworks by the harbour.

An experience that shall be repeated repeatedly for sure.


cycling/motorbiking, scuba diving, football (soccer), basketball, mountaineering/rock climbing, swimming and learning languages! I suck at the languages part though.

Music, Movies, and Books

too many to list - not all that into sci fi though, also used to be into self-help/development/motivational stuff but i'm convinced its a load of crap now so no more.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

skydiving! i jumped out @ an altitude of 14000ft
i did standup for a while, was in a movie about its reach here in the middle east, and got the chance to perform in front of vince vaughn and robert de niro at the premier of the movie!
i've been to iraq for work and had an insane security escort convoy, pretty cool if you ask me.
i also once saw a pride lions devouring a giraffe, in Kruger park (RSA), pretty awesome if you ask me!
euro (road) trip from Poland all the way to the south of France! fuel costs raped us but it was well worth it
i also managed to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2013!
went on another road trip, this time in Australia. Adelaide to Brisbane, tons of stops along the way - the best of which was Sydney for NYE and Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast. I loved the waves.
Driving down the pacific coastal highway in California, AMAZING scenery.
Raced around Sri Lanka in a Tuk Tuk with 6 other teams, unforgettable memories..
