About Me


No mission. Just acceptance. What it is, what it was, and what it shall be.

Do whatever you want, as long as it causes no harm to others. Individual freedom extends as far as the next individual.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been hosting couch surfers and being hosted for most of my life. Before, it was with friends of friends. Since joining couch surfing, I've loved hosting, surfing, and meeting new couch surfing friends everywhere I go.


Surfing couches is one of the best ways to make new friends and solidify existing friendships. It's a beautiful thing to share space, share food, share laughter,and share joy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My wife, Hanane, and I met through couchsurfing. Neither of us expected it. We were married in a traditional Sahara Berber wedding. We trekked by camel to a desert oasis and danced with friends among the dunes.
