About Me


I still feel too young to have a rounded life philosophy, but in lieu thereof I'm simply trying to learn, see and experience as much as I can, be it through reading, talking with others, or simply exploring other parts of the world.


Easy-going, open, curious, loves to meet new people and see new places. 23 years old and a student in Paris. Interested by most things, but especially the arts in any form, languages, philosophy, and people's life stories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet people when traveling most of all. Then to have a roof for a night as well :)


A French literature student at college, my other interests include traveling, running, hiking, biking, films, art history and conversations.

Music, Movies, and Books

Borges, Balzac, Shakespeare, Cortázar, Woolf, Faulkner, Homer, Hopkins -- anything that challenges one's emotive perceptions of humans and the world... Fellini, Polanski, Dreyer, Antonioni, Jeff Nichols

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

No one amazing thing, just trying to live life well.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always interested to learn what has brought people to where they are now, what they consider their important life decisions. What I could teach... how to ride a unicycle, the basics of bartending, why the value of art is not relative.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a very clean and orderly person, and quiet when necessary.
