About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Traveling and adventures! I'm on a tour with a crazy-amazing contemporary circus performer : http://www.alengthofrope.com/
We're going all over the USA in a tiny truck with a mattress in the back.

ABOUT ME

Traveling is a passion that was passed on to me from my parents who met traveling. My dream when I was little was to be a citizen of the world- that is, obtain citizenship in every country. I love movies, watching them, making them, analyzing them and discussing them, but I also love music, books, writing, drawing, learning, playing... I'm a former student of cinema in Paris, aiming to work as an assistant director.

PHILOSOPHY

You can never stop learning. May you stay forever young! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've mostly hosted so far, but have had a fair amount of experiences surfing - all of my experiences have been absolutely wonderful- I don't regret a single one, and have made some truly wonderful friends! This year, while traveling, I'd like to do some more surfing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've surfed a bit, and hosted a lot (my old flatmates and I would host someone on a regular basis), but would definitely like to get more involved- this is a great way to travel, meet people, and exchange ideas, philosophies and cultures.

Interests

I like anything fun and creative; these days I'm mostly working artisinal crafts (origami) and sewing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love a variety of music from blues/jazz to new-wave, rock to punk to classical… I'm pretty open.
I generally like to read those absurdly big books that weigh down your backpack (my aunt finally took pity on me and got me a kindle, which I alternate with paper books), take weeks to finish, and leave you with the sense of having lost a best friend when you finish.
I can't even go into movies in this tiny square… like music, my cinematic interests vary according to periods of time and passions.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I taught english in an elementary school in Ecuador. It was a very remote community and I learned so much there, and fell in love with the culture.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love games and and would love to teach some or to learn new ones (especially cards, board games and cadavre esquis). This also includes magic tricks (I have an excellent trick involving two wine corks (of course this means drinking at least two bottles beforehand).

What I Can Share with Hosts

Card games, play games, all sorts.

I cook a chicken curry dish with coconut milk that is not half-bad!

Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Ecuador, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Montenegro, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United States, Viet Nam
