Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Christophe’s full profile. It’s free!
To discover and understand our world.
I am a tea, coffee and maté drinker. I am also a beer-o-phile. I do not like sweets (and this includes chocolate under 70%)... yep, I would not have survived as a monkey in the jungle.
I LIKE TO WALK.
I can't barely pass a day without listening to music and I go see live concerts everytime I have a chance (75 shows per year on average). Yes, my life revolves around music, even though I don't play professionally (if we don't count 11 years of piano)...
I am also a runner, swimmer and cyclist.
I LIKE TO WALK.
I work as a researcher at an addiction rehabilitation centre and as a clinician in a mood disorders clinic for youths. Therefore, professionally, my main interests are mood disorders, personality disorders, drug abuse and depedency, and self-injurious behaviours.
Carpe noctum! When you send me a request, tell me something about sleep.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I subscribed to Couchsurfing initially to meet new people from all parts of the world. The reason has not changed since 2007!
I like opening dialogues on diverse topics to learn more about others, hoping to integrate their views to mine.
Almost everything. Except business and cars.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: These days, I listen: Chinese Man, Fauve, Fakear, Esmerine, Goodspeed you Black Emperor, Moriarty and Nick Cave.
I listen a lot of bands from Québec since I try to promote the musical diversity and uniqueness that is being made in our francophone region of North America. I also like reggae, dub, folk and gypsy music in general. I'm really not into the top-40. To be honest, I haven't listen to the radio for the past 10 years, so I don't know what are the big hits right now...
Authors that I like: Boris Vian, Zola, Jack Kerouac, Ismael Kadaré, Mircea Eliade, Arto Paasilinna, Darina Al-Joundi, Orhan Pamuk, William S. Burroughs, Charles Perrault, Hans Christian Andersen, etc. So I really like fairy/folk-tales and I have this fascination for the Beat Generation. I also like reading contemporary novels where cities seem to play a main role.
Movies: Trainspotting, Gegen die Wand, Auf der Anderen Seite, Crossing the Bridge: the Sound of Istanbul, Blue Velvet, Inland Empire, Mulholland Drive. Yep, I am a big David Lynch and Fatih Akin fan.
I go see a lot of theatre and contemporary dance shows. Like 2-3 times a week...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Being sleep deprived for 13 days, with only 2-3 hours of sleep per night... I will never do that again!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can share some knowledge about drug and alcohol history.
