About Me


Spreading my good mood across the universe


i'm a very openminded men, always ready for new experiences and always ready for travelling.
Even if i'm often alone on the road, i'm very attached to my family (wife and 2 children)

I'm an academic researcher (in the field of geography) and i am also winemaker. I produce each years about 4000 bottles of organic french wine (White, Red and Rosé)


be open and try to understand everybody

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to meet people when i travel, to get tips from them, to discover their country. I don't necessarly need a couch, but a coffe or a glas of wine !
I can welcome anyone in france, be a guide (for the places that i know) and offer a couch in my family "home sweet home" in a small village in the middle of the wineyards.

I used to be ambassador for my city during 3 years. Now i stay a little bit at the background (i needed time for my professionnal project) but i'm still fully enthousiastic about CS !

Teach, Learn, Share

i'm teaching geography at the university. I also published several books and articles on geography of health.

I'm currrently learning portuguese and i'd like to learn spanish.
