About Me

Accomplishing a lifelong dream and visiting Japan. Ongoing :)
I am currently traveling, after a pilgrimage on Kumano Kodo, i am visiting the south of Japan.


I am a passionate man. I put a lot of effort in anything I do and I try to make it as best as I can. I change country quite often, I love the exciting feeling of discovering a new culture.

I love dancing ! Mostly swing : Lindy Hop, Balboa, but also West coast swing and blues.

I have fallen in love with Jazz and Blues music a long time ago.

I am welcoming and extremely curious. Show me something I don't know I will really appreciate you !


"J'ai une très bonne étoile". I am a REALLY lucky man! (I try to tell it every day when I wake up)
