About Me


documentary making, communication trainer


I grew up in south brittany and love this area.
I've been living in Paris for 15 years ; I first worked as an engineer then turned into arts (drama/movies), 8 years ago.
I learned acting/ dancing/singing and mainly played in short films. I now slowly learn script writing and directing (beginner!)
I now look for a way to do things i like... and get enough money to travel again!

I both like city and nature.


"Respect yourself and you'll respect one other"

I believe "Every single one has a story to tell"

Trying to stay curious.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS is an opportunity to meet the people I would not meet in my daily activities. It keeps me open-minded on different people's realities. And helps going over clichés. I have so many "clichés" about people/ places I don't know!


I met couchsurfers in Paris, usually for cinema in english (old movies as well as lastest realeases).
Some gigs too.
I host from time to time, according to mood and availability.
I really believe CS, anthentic meetinf, requires time and mind availability. I don't want to force myself nor other to do it!


I host friends, friends of friends...and surfed as well at friends of friends. :)
I surfed in Iran, Italy, France.


humor !
Stories, especially People's life stories.

I love music (I like to play some guitare and sing some folk songs), like to go out listenning some music (anykind except strong electronic beat), walk around the city as well as in nature.

Arts in general: photography, cinema (American 50's, Almodovar, sundance festival movies...) books, philosophy (almost when I understand it :)

Travelbook stories.
Ernest Hemingway, raymond carver, David Grossman...

Italian, asian food.

Friendship :)
