About Me


Plan my next trip ...


I am a tall but kind french guy. I really like my country even if I am currently a little tired about my city of Paris. I passed a mechanical engineering diploma in 2005 and a Master of Management in 2007 before travelling during 6 months around the world and to experience the world via the CS way. I visited Thaïland, Malaysia, Singapour, Australia, New-Zealand, United States, Mexico and Canada. During this trip I met a lot of 'weird' but interesting people. Then I keep working in the IT and PLM area before decided to quit again to enjoy the South America ... I'm a very sportive man who try to develop his skillz to the outdoor activites to really enjoy nature and wildlife. I like all kind of music, I like reading and discovering new things in this area. I am in love with a very beautiful french woman and we are taking care of our young 4-year old princess.


Cool but decided to make my own life a really beautiful life.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been hosted by very friendly guys all around the world during my world trip and now I take a real pleasure to host people from everywhere.
Hope i am going to improve my deutch and my russian oral skills by this way.


A lot of very interesting chats and experiences to keep enjoying and understanding the countries we travelled. Of course sometimes it is not so interesting but as Forrest Gump says "Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you are gonna get!"

I could write a book to explain the kindness of my hosts or surfers from everywhere around the world.
