About Me

No job. I retired at 39 🌴
No car. I travel across continents ✈️
No house. I live around the world ⛱

How I stay happy:
I do want I want, when I want, and with who I want.

I travel full-time without a job. I don't trade my hours for dollars, so I have 100% free time.

I'm happily retired for over 9 years. I didn't win the lottery. I inherited nothing. I don't work. I travel all year, living in Japan, Taiwan, Canada, Mexico, Poland, and Hungary. I spend my days reading, dating girls, and practicing local languages.

Here's my biography. 4-minute video (from Le Devoir, newspaper in Quebec):

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

How do you see the world? I love listening to the stories about your life and experiences. From you and others, I learn new perspectives about the world.

My goal is to help you succeed in your goal and dreams.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read a book a day, watch movies, and practice languages.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I retired at age 39. I invest to create time. My investments pay me to live around the world 🌐

Teach, Learn, Share

Ask me anything about money and investing. Do you have questions about my life abroad, my daily routine, my love life? Are you curious about how I afford to travel full-time?

I'm financially free because I don't have a marketable skill. So I invest in those who do. It's a simple philosophy that gives me the flexibility to work (if I want to), or travel full-time without a job. By investing in other people's businesses, I stopped trading my time for money.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I don't share my wealth. I share my investment philosophy, so that you can gain financial freedom and share your unique skills with the world!
