About Me

I'm a freelancer, engaged in the development sector, arts and culture, gender and women's rights, social enterprises… Etc.
I've been living in Nairobi, Kenya for more than five years and I can share my experiences with you but, I'm not accepting any guests at the moment, I will be nomadic for a few months until I land in Cambodia.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've surfed once and hosted a few surfers. Its great to meet people and hear their travel stories, such as this guy who came all the way from Europe on his bike....
Also, I love the concept of opening your house and sharing food and stories with strangers


i like traveling, cooking, eating, spending time with friends and exploring new things and places, art, beaches, vulcanos,... running, outdoor/hiking, etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

traveling on the Amazon river was quite amazing, climbing a volcano, well, and a lot of things are just still undone I guess ;-)

Countries I've Visited

Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Côte d'Ivoire, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Syrian Arab Republic, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia

Countries I've Lived In
