About Me


Master of the world


Hello there!

I'm Gaëtan, a french graphic designer working in a startup in Paris. I grew up in Lorraine (the region right next to Luxembourg to buy cheaper alcohol and tabac, to Belgium for the best festivals (DOURRRRÉÉÉÉÉ) and to Germany for the Oktoberfest).

I live in Paris since five years now. I love that city since day one and it still continues to surprise me, so i'd be happy to hang out with you in the city and try to make you discover my favorite neighborhoods.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I'm interested in CS because of its adventurer and spontaneous aspect far away from well organised trips. Cause it's always funnier when you don't know what your day will look like when you get up in the morning :)


I hosted plenty of people in my tiny old apartment, and it was already awesome every time. Now that i have a bigger apartment, a courtyard, some awesome neighbors and cute cats passing by, i'm ready to do it again!


I'm working as a designer in a tech startup so i guess everything related to these topics. Big music listener, love quality clubs and quality bars with some nice belgian beers :)

I'm often stuck into the cat videos part of Youtube too.
