Join Couchsurfing to see André’s full profile. It’s free!
Hello there! I live in Montreal since 2013 working for a small NGO acting in Ecuador. I was born and grew up mainly in France, and studied in Spain and Canada, my family is mainly in Puerto Rico (to make it more complicated :-).
I lived my best experiences by exploring and discovering new places, new environments and above all new people, sometimes using couchsurfing.
I live in a pretty and small appartement, but ideally located and full of light, you are welcome!
I like this quotation from Lao Tseu: "A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.
A good scientist has freed himself of concepts and keeps his mind open to what is.
Thus the Master is available to all people and doesn't reject anyone. He is ready to use all situations and doesn't waste anything."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I had many great experiences with CS, I also welcomed couchsurfeurs, and was hosted by them too.
Dreaming with others, tennis, photography, drawing, psychology, sociology, coffee, reading, running. In winter when the cold gets under -20C, I paint and drink hot chocolat.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Goodbye Lenin, La tortue Rouge, The revenant, Dances with wolves, Interestellar, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Contact, Nim island, Annaud, Shyamalan, Almodovar, I also love environmental documentaries

The music I listen to mostly depends on my mood.
