About Me

I'm easy-going and looking forward to learn, discover and create projects with peoples from the whole world.
I travel a lot because of my work (research in computer sciences), and particularly love to visit cities "in immersion": living with / like the locals.
I welcome any new experience with a great interest and do not intend to stop being amazed by any little discovery on the way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Me and my room-mates just moved to a big house with a lot of place to host people. We decided to have the most possible people dropping by and sharing their experience with us ... We had a lot a couchsurfers at home, mostly from my roommate couchsurfing account...

I also couchsurfed my way around Britany by bike.


My interests are wide:
- I'm a medieval reenactors, which makes me design, craft and use a lot of historical costumes and accessories. (For now, Viking-age, 11th century, 14th century, Victorian and Pirate outfits)
- I'm passionate with any kind of games: board games, card games, rôle-playing games (tabletop and live-action), video games...
- I'm a potent crafter for leather-working, wood-working, sewing, foam sculpting and others...
- I'm an administrator of a big association promoting scientific culture.
- I'm a computer scientist, and I enjoy coding and playing with electronics.
- I enjoy cooking and most of the time manage to reach tasty results !
- And, once again, I'm basically always searching to discover new interests...
