About Me


Kazakhstan + Kirghizistan


I am actually trying to keep one foot in the "world of cinema", one in the "Chinese world".
I lived in China but before that hosted a lot of people in France, and not only using Couchsurfing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Open minded philosophy and more..!


Ive been surfing from 2011 (China), then did it in Europe, began hosting in France, went through whole Iran thanks to CS, surfed again in China and did Iran again.
I have to say, meeting in their own country some people that you've hosted before is a great feeling.

CS is the best way of travelling and obviously I'm not talking about money. I long for my good friends in Hongkong, Shiraz, ...


Arthouse cinema and everything related to the chinese-speaking countries.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Iranian new year is actually better than the Chinese new year.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm willing to learn about your culture and often travel with very simplistic goal like "I want to see this place" or "I will go there and buy this thing". This gives me plenty of time to learn about my surroundings.

What I Can Share with Hosts

anything from a good story to a good meal

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, China, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Montenegro, Netherlands, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

China, France
