About Me


Open a cute tiny restaurant-bar


I see myself as an easy-going "bon vivant" enjoying life and having fun; somewhat of an epicurean and a hedonist with a warm personality.

If it's naughty, unconventional, bizarre, anti-establishment, queer, spontaneous, kinky or just beats the routine then I'm probably game. I like to try new things and to experiment, so if you need a partner in crime I'm ready to rob the bank!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to host people and if time and my schedule allows. I enjoy taking my surfers to local events, shows and/or parties in order to expose them to great alternative city-life that makes Montreal famous - some of it might be hard to hear about or figure out as a traveller.


I've met a myriad of surfers and so far I've surfed and hosted quite a few times, which proved to be one of the best and most gratifying experiences of travelling; to have someone extend its cozy hospitality to you when things go wrong or to have that feeling that you're giving someone a lasting impression on your culture and city.


Board games, whisky, snuggling, glitter, electro-pop, sheesha, naps, BBQs, lipstick, films & movies, the electric boogie, midnight-picknicks, thrifting, screwing up any and every language, skinny dipping, queer activism, cook-a-thons, sleepovers, flea markets, crashing at parks, silly tv shows, playing dress up, eating, artsy performances, libations, city-exploring, snow ball fights, nudism, icecream, social justice, socio-political issues, twister and biking under the rain.

I also happen to really love and enjoy cooking, dancing, hosting, scuba diving, discussions and debauchery.
