About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Genetically modify my snakes to create dragons

ABOUT ME

The only way to know someone is face to face. But in two words, I think I am like a 26 year old child.

I spent all my childhood in Lebanon, in a somewhat closed-minded community, since I moved to Paris 8 years ago I met some extraordinary friends, and I am now addicted to meeting new people and having my ideas challenged. And I think CS is a great way to do that!

PHILOSOPHY

I try to listen instead of just waiting for my turn to speak.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

To lure CouchSurfers into my home and use them as cheap snake food!

Interests

Meeting people with completely different outlooks on life and listening to their story on this earth.

Having fun, doing stupid stuff in Paris is my second favorite hobby. My first is have a nice metaphysical discussion on deep subjects at 3 am.

I am interested in science, I play table-tennis quite well and like to swim a lot, play the guitar (miserably) and like to cook. I also enjoy every kind of outdoor activity: Hiking, biking, walking, especially in the mountains.

Music, Movies & Books

I love Sci-Fi or fantasy movies and books, basically anything that transports me to another world. I also read history, science and philosophy books.

And I mainly listen to progressive rock bands like Pink Floyd or Camel and to metal music like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Opeth, Dream Theater, Dark Tranquility, In Flames, Amon Amarth... anything from classical music to death metal and rock in general.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once won a race against a few million competitors, and so did you!

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you French, Arabic, how to juggle and the different ways your brain is fooling you!

Learning anything about your way of looking at the world would be great, also basic words and phrases in new languages!
Oh, and if anyone can teach me how to properly breathe fire...
