About Me


fit my home in a backpack and stay nomad


I like to meet new people and spend good time with friends. I'm really curious, always craving for new learning experiences. I'm seeking adventures, especially when I travel. But even in my everyday life, I like crazy ideas. I'm a spontaneous and straightforward person.
I love to listen to people's life stories and to hear their opinion on different subjects. I'm generally active, always doing something or talking about something. I'm also a traveler like most people on CS. What I like the best about traveling is the state of mind, so I try to keep it even when I'm home.


I love to be challenged, I believe this is the best way to learn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted a lot of people at my apartment in Montreal, but it was not always through this website. I have friends from all around the world so there's often someone crashing on my couch.
I couchsurfed a few places in North America and in Europe, always positive and fulfilling.


Learning about anything, trying everything, reading, festivals, live shows, cinema, music, theater, biking, outdoors, hitchhiking, traveling, dreaming, camping anywhere, education, international development, playing games, random meetings...
It can go on for a while...

Music, Movies, and Books

I love so many books, movies and music; it's too long to put in that site!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Over the last years I hitchhiked more then 50,000 km in America, Europe and Africa. Most of the time, I hitchhike by myself.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to teach.
I love to learn about anything, especially if it's from someone passionate.
We can share about our culture and lifestyle. That's the beauty of CS!
