About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To visit all seven continents before I turn thirty

ABOUT ME

I'm a traveler, an artist and a nice, non-thieving dude. I like meeting people and swapping stories, wandering around foreign cities taking photographs, and chasing after random adventures. I've been to almost fifty countries and backpacked across two continents so I'm pretty adaptable to whatever the road chucks my way.

PHILOSOPHY

You only live once. Try everything twice.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted twice and been hosted twice now, and they've all been excellent experiences. I'm also quite involved in the Lyon community, and many of my friends I've made in France have come from CouchSurfing. That's why I'm really looking forward to having even more experiences coming up.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Teach, Learn, Share

I've been teaching myself French for the last few years and wouldn't mind practicing with other people looking for some good conversation.

I can also teach you how to make a crossword.
