About Me


Making every moment a work of art


The easiest way for me to define my self is by saying I am an alchemist or on the path to be one.

On this path, I shoot pictures that in the end looks more like paintings. I write poetry and draw as well.
I am on the way to learn tattooing. It an spiritual act to me, a way to enlightenment, to reinforce yourself and who you are.

I should study theology next year threw an internet bachelor giving by the faculty of Geneva.

I practice Ashtanga Yoga and also sing (for now, just for my self, not ready yet to sing in front of others. it is one of my goals though).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am mainly hosting or being hosted.

CS tough me how to share and receive. I have met so many people threw this community that helped me understand that the global beneficial of everyone will help each individual to feel happier. It tough how to accept help from stranger. But also how to give to someone who was a stranger to me. What goes around goes around.


Life! definitely the thing I am mostly interested in!

Otherwise all kinds actually. Phtography, films, drawings, installations, performances, books, philosophy, mythologie, religions...

I find my spirituality in alchemy.

Things like Wardruna or Avor Pärt also...

Books? The mysanthrothist of Molière. The way of the Pacific Warrior of Dan Millman. The alchemist of Paolo Cuelho. All Nieztche's (I haven't read all his books, but I love his philosophy). The treaty of the 5 rings of Miyamoto Musashi.
I like to read books about art as well.

Art? Carravaggio, Bacon, Schiele, mains of the romantics, Michel-Angelo, zen art, land art,... many more but I have problems to remember names...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Japan marked me! I was young and it was one my dreams to go to Japan. The Misu Temple was one of the incredible things I could see there.

A visit marked my life. It's the Concentration Camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

The desert in Marroco, cannot say more then it was one of the most incredible things I have experienced... Can't wait to go back.

Simple discovering Ashtanga Yoga. A life change!

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy talking, philosophizing, exchanging ideas and thoughts.
I can share my knowledge (that has its limits) on photography.
I can teach a lot of cocktails!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I guess the first thing is food. I really enjoy cooking for others. Sharing a nice dinner is one of the simply things of life that I really enjoy.

I guess at some point I'll be able to share some yoga and hopefully one day shiatsu as well. But Right now I too much of an apprentice to pretend teaching this.
