About Me

I am a visual guy.

A freelance worker, documentarist, videographer, designer; whatever you call is about visual stuff.
I am moving slowly but adapting easily.

I am not good to explain myself in writing but you can take a look at my video/photo stories from those links:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am trying to adapt the life after the pandemic crisis.

We've forgotten who we were in past and now I am trying to back to my life again. Being hosted and hosting people around my town makes me feel to remember who was I am. So, Couchsurfing was the best part of our old life, it's the best time to turn back.

There is nothing better than this platform and hitchhiking for collecting stories about different lives.


Learning is my lifetime's favorite interest, in addition to:
photography/videography, traveling, meeting new people, cooking, drawing



I am interested in meeting you whoever you are, I wish to know what do you think makes you, you :)

Music, Movies, and Books

every movie has a special scene.

but one of the most interesting one is Nostalghia from Tarkovsky.

well, Woodkid for his live performance.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I resigned from my perfect job in the municipality in 2018, and since that date I am a free bird.

And maybe being a part of the biggest graffiti project in Turkey, can be counted as an amazing thing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Life is all about learning from others.

I can't teach anything but I can share whatever I've on my plate. I am kind of a nerd on basic things. I can share the best tricks about taking photos, no one would share with you.

And maybe you would be amazed by my stories from Jordanian deserts.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Having a Turkish dinner isn't a bad idea for the next day, ha? I can cook good dishes and give advice about visual stuff for improving your life quality.
