To meet people, discover countries, contemplate landscapes, enjoy other cultures, have fun!
I'm a very open minded person and I am interested in a lot of different things : playing sports (judo, swimming, rugby...), playing music (viola and bass guitar), listening to music (from classical music to french hip-hop!) and I'm a cinema freak (I love cinema and almost every kind of films, from Die Hard to 2001, from Judd Apatow to Apichatpong Weerasethakul, from the dullest - but often very well made - to the most intellectual movies - quite often boring when badly crafted).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I first registered on CS because of my trip in the US in August 2009. But as soon as I became more familiar with the CS concept, I was glad to be part of it both as a guest and as a host. Today, I host people in Marseille, so be free to come!
I have couchsurfed through the US; from San Francisco to New York City, and I have always met nice, open-minded people, ready to host you and share a few days with you. I did the same in Paris for two years, and now I am doing it in Marseille!
Reading, watching movies, music, playing sports, having a drink with friends, photography, dancing, etc. Life!
I'm also a Liverpool Football Club fan, which means that I'm often busy on Saturday or Sunday afternoon to support my favorite team in any pub close to where I am! And I don't mean that Man U. or Everton fans aren't welcomed to surf my place : let's share our passion for football, let's the best team win (and let's prey that it'll be Liv'pool!).
Music, Movies, and Books
Music : I'm an absolute Pink Floyd fan, and I enjoy most of the 70s rock'n'roll. Obviously, as a guy born in the late 80s, I enjoy hip-hop music from the US (especially The Coup) or from France. I also like electronic music, but mostly the most downtempo stuff, the so-called "French Touch" (and I love the last Daft Punk album!).
Books : I have quite eclectic tastes. I used to read a lot of American books (my favorite are Bret Easton Ellis') but now days I read french, Italian and Spanish literature. I also read a lot of essays, mostly for work, but also because I like learning new stuff!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Wuw. The whole " San Francisco-NYC " trip was amazing, mostly the Rapid City part (surfing a bus' roof, climbing Needles, WOW) and also the old Reno life...
I've done scuba diving in the Red Sea, and I think that's something everybody should have done in his life, so much beauty is astonishing. I saw a Rage Against the Machine concert, never saw so much energy in a crowd. A short list to improve!
Teach, Learn, Share
I just arrived in Marseille, but my knowledge of the city is not bad, so I can show you around if you want to!
Apart from that, I've got academic skills in sociology, philosophy and economics too. That might be less interesting for you, but I'm very fond of the subjects these sciences are about. Metaphysics, working issues, political actions, the nature of art, all of this are my prime interests.
