About Me


lifting slabs of stone


Named after some immoral dandy, who ultimately didn't get to enjoy painting as much as he could have.

(forever scattered among the heathenish brambles of fire and mirth he lurks, grasping at bare shadows of reality as he plunders the attics of the gods in quest for sparks of life, running wild in raptures unknown and awkward abode in the valley of forbidden dreams - he strides at ease and fingertips reach out, lightly stroke the glory hidden of the golden skies. Past and future left in the wake of a fleeting smile craved for long and gently unravelled from the deep of female mysteries - he stands in wonder)

« Un remords vaut mieux qu'une hésitation qui se prolonge. »
H. de M.

"Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)"
W. W.


May every second be the last one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I infuse this network with the great vital power of the qi.
Feel free to send a 'thank you' postcard upon reaching the ultimate stage of saintliness.


Been lucky enough to host, and been hosted by, many human beings I greatly appreciate and admire - in various places of this little planet. I would thank God every day for this, were I to believe in Him (or in capital Letters).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I visited City Island, in New York. Random random random, love it, will burn it to the ground one day and make it mine!

Teach, Learn, Share

Don't plan on renting a horse to walk the kora around lake Manasarovar; all you'll find there is yellow kids, instant dust and wild noodles. Perhaps.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A taste of the most foul-tasting booze to be found in a 500-mile radius.

Countries I’ve Lived In

China, France, Hong Kong, Japan, Niger
