About Me

!!! Under constant construction !!!

I got the virus of traveling some years ago when I first left my home country to have a semester of studies in Portugal. Since then, traveling became a true part of my life. In a sense, that was the first step of my international experiences which brought me to many places and ended for me to leave and work here in Florida for a year and a half.

Here in Florida, I'm a trainee in the space industry. I'm having busy days during the week but I'm always willing to have a drink somewhere during the evening or to make some new activities or travels during the weekend.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I can't describe how meeting persons from different cultures has opened my mind to some dimensions I would never have expected. And making new friends while ttraveling is definitely the greatest way of traveling.

Music, Movies, and Books

MUSIC
I'm about almost everything which is audible (from classic to hard rock metal litterally). But currently, as I'm in the US, I have found myself into the rap and hiphop (new and old), I like to listen to artists like Cunnilinguist or 2PAC and Jurrasic5 is one of my favorite band here even if it's an old one. I'm just waiting for your favorite band that I don't already know !

Here are some french artists I like particularly :
Manu Chao (Kind of reggae/ska, he has his very own style)
Caravane Palace (Electroswing)
Chill Bump (Rap)
Chinese Man (Trip hop)

Here a bag full of random artists I also like :
Army of the pharaos, Baxter Dury, Biga Ranx, Buena vista social club, Caribou, Die Antwort, Dropkick Murphis, Gorillaz, Gun's and Roses, Hilltop hoods, Ludovico Einaudi, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Massive Attack, Neil Young, Parov Stelar, Rakoon, Toots & the Maytals, Xavier Rudd ....

MOVIES
I would say, "Man from Earth" impressed me by the concept and "There is something about Mary" is the film I've watched 50 times with a friend since I'mm a kid and I'm still laughing ^^.

BOOKS
Really liked 1984 and the Animal Farm from George Orwell.
