About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Right now, I'm working on that conquer all your fears thingy.

ABOUT ME

Welcome to Brussels!

I'm just someone... living in Brussels. I love this city, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge about it with others.

If you want to know more, even before having the opportunity to meet me, you need to buy my autobiography :p

Just check my references if you want to know the kind of guy I am :) It's going to take you a while, but it's going to give you a pretty accurate idea of who I am.

I would describe myself as a bit introverted, in the sense that I'm not the typical high-energy crazy guy. However, I often take the lead when needed. I'm a bit of an attention whore too :p

PHILOSOPHY

If you weren't so afraid of doing some things, you wouldn't feel so free when you did them. So, close your eyes, and jump.

I try to live by that code, but nobody is perfect :p

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had a lot of great experiences since I started. It's getting harder every day to say which one was the best :)

It's usually not about what I do with my surfers, but about the connection we create. Sometimes there's not big connection, but it doesn't make it a bad experience :)

Besides hosting, I participate a lot in the local dimension of CouchSurfing. I organize and/or attend meetings/events/gatherings in Brussels on a regular basis (at least once a week).

Interests

- Lindy Hop
- Hosting people from all around the world
- Tasting beers
- Traveling (I wish I could do more of that)
- Brussels

Music, Movies & Books

Music I mostly enjoy Pop Rock, but I listen to pretty much everything. Here's a few bands I enjoy, for different reasons:
- Aerosmith
- Black Eyed Peas
- Radiohead

Movies To name just a few...
- Cruel Intentions (1999)
- Finding Forrester (2000)
- The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
- Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
- Tears of the Sun (2003)
- Beyond the Gates / Shooting Dogs (2005)
- Blood Diamond (2006)

Comedians A couple comedians I enjoy...
- Bill Maher
- Bill Burr
- Louis C.K.
- Mitch Fatel
- Doug Stanhope
- Dane Cook
