About Me

I am a calm, though outgoing person. I'm pretty optimistic and joyful. I'm very curious and I like to learn stuff. I can be quite a smart-ass and I'm sometimes suprisingly stuburn.

I just finished my master's degree in literature and I currently teach french to college students and immigrants. When I'm not reading books, I like to dance Rockabilly Jive, play ukulele, taste microbrewery beers, go see plays, watch movies, play board games and hang out with friends. And obviously, I love traveling!

P.S. My first language is French, but I'm too lazy to translate all my profile. Don't hesitate to write to me in French though!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I like people and traveling! And Couchsurfing makes me believe in a world where people care about each other.


I have both couchsurfed and hosted. I especially like when my host has time to show me around his city and try to do the same with the couchsurfers I host (when my schedule allows it).


Reading, drinking good beer, brewing decent beer, dancing Rockabilly Jive, playing ukulele, playing board games, wandering around town (Montréal is an amazing city!), going out to see plays or shows, staying in to watch movies, drinking tea and coffee, being out in the woods or on the roads, meeting new people, learning stuff...

I especially like to talk and learn stuff about: sociology, culture, linguistics, feminism... basically anything that concerns the way human beings live together.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: All movies written by Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Synecdoque New York...), I'm Not There, Into the Wild, Lost in Translation, Where the Wild Things Are, Darjeeling Limited, Her... independent, intelligent and original movies in general.

Music: mainly folk and bluegrass, and a bit of indie rock (lots of music from Quebec you probably wouldn't know of, but also Arcade Fire, Bob Dylan, Trampled by Turtles, Old Crow Medecine Show, The Cat Empire, The Kinks...)

Books: Quebec novels, road novels and especially Quebec road novels (which is my thesis' subject)... Otherwise, mostly French/English/American 20th century novels (which would be too long to list) and Quebec graphic novels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Pretty much all my travels were amazing experiences, but especially:
- doing an international cooperation internship in Nicaragua for 2 months
- hitchhiking from Vancouver to Whitehorse (2500 km)
- cycling around Ireland for a month
- spending a semester abroad in France (and traveling around Europe on weekends and Holidays)

Teach, Learn, Share

I really like to share travel anecdotes. If you have any funny/special travel stories, I will be glad to hear them. I also like to learn historical or cultural facts about the places I visit, and share trivia facts about my own city.

Besides that, I can teach you a lot about beer, Quebec culture (books, music, movies) and French language. And being a really curious person, almost anything you would want to teach me would be appreciated!
