About Me


Take a break


I am French and German, studying in Paris after a year on exchange in Canada. I am nearing the end of my masters in communications, during which I've been an intern at a digital agency and at Ubisoft. I also work as a sales assistant on weekends.

I love everything and anything related to entertainment, but most of all movies. I am an unconditional fan of Pixar. Thanks to an unlimited movie pass I try to go see as many movies as possible - what I love most is going on my own or choosing a movie at random just 5 minutes before the screening starts.

I would describe myself as an outgoing introvert, who loves meeting people but also quite enjoys the occasional moment of silence and solitude. Which is why couchsurfing while travelling on my own is a great mix.

I love dinosaurs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't have the room to host yet but I hope it will be possible soon!


I've used CS a few times and it was clearly a good idea. I even got to talk to people who couldn't host me, but still helped me out.


What do I like? Cooking, but baking especially, cupcakes and sweet stuff. Doodling random things on little pieces of paper and throwing them away. Buying new notebooks and writing on the first few pages before stacking them neatly on a shelf. Lying in the sun, but with a bit of shadow because I can achieve a classy lobster shade in less time than you would need to cook a lobster. Watching music videos. Taking pictures. Getting lost in the depths of Imgur, Reddit and xkcd. Also, I can never travel enough, but I never mind missing out on the big attractions when I travel. I'm really excited whenever I get on a plane, but I hate landing. And to end on a random note, I've been waiting a long time for my next opportunity to go windsurfing.
