About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Converting dreams into real experiences

ABOUT ME

''Explorateur du réel" ("Explorer of reality"), this is how I like to think of myself.

I am very curious, interested in any possible knowledge or experience I can get!

A mix between a pragmatic and analytic expert, an idealistic and romantic philosopher, an art passionate - somehow writer - wannabe photographer and, most importantly, food and taste lover!

PHILOSOPHY

It'll be a pleasure to share it with you when I meet you! Could not sum it up in only a few words...

Although I can say that it would be a weird mix like 'carpe diem beyond good and evil'!

Oh, and the power of empathy and intuition as existential tools.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

host 'n surf.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've surfed on many couches, mostly in Europe, and hosted some people so far!

Interests

I am interested by mostly everything. Literally! I like to look at things in many different ways, not only the conventional one. My experiences thought me that once you deconstruct a commonly accepted idea, you realize that there is much more behind it.

-Travelling -History -Great outdoors -Politics -Sociology -Philosophy -Cooking -Music -Guitar -Literature -Movies -Sports (Hockey, tennis, etc.)

Music, Movies & Books

Radiohead, Nicolas Jaar, Jose Gonzalez, Avishai Cohen, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Doors, Jean Leloup, Neil Young, Manu Chao, Four Tet, Bonobo...

I'm a big movie fan, but it seems to be difficult for me to list them..

Among my favourites writers are Jorge-Luis Borges, Albert Camus, Milan Kundera, Kafka, Dostoievski, Ernesto Sabato, Julio Cortazar, Dostoievski, Nietzsche...

I just LOVE reading.
