About Me


Connecting with light, love and peace more deeply.


I'm a vegan, a textile artist, dedicated in spiritual life, on the path of pursuing truth and happiness.

I enjoy weaving, knitting, sewing, get all ideas realized and share them out with more others.

I have a dream, that is to build or work in a self-sufficient sustainable community with indigenous people anywhere in the world, knitting, weaving or practicing embroidery with them.

Here I would like to share Sri Aurobindo's philosophy that I respect a lot and would like to work in that kind of community



- while other go further, I go deeper.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host people when I'm available, and trying to meet locals when I'm out.


I met great persons from CS by hosting and being invited by them.


Collecting yarns, fabrics, weaving, knitting,embroidery, sewing, photography,yoga, meditation, hiking, walking, biking.... I'll add more later.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Winter Hiking on/in the snow at Mountain Giant with a group of wonderful friends.

-Spend 10 days in Mexico City and many other days in other areas, great inspiring place. I'm very proud of following my own heart and breaking the lies trumped up by the medias and some persons around me.

Teach, Learn, Share

-It would be great to bring me some 100% yarns from your own country or the places you travel across, wool or bio coton, hemp, or mixed silk&wool, anything new or improved ones, a small skein will be enough.
-Share with me a piece of fabrics that you carry in memories.

-The guest will be expected to create a small useful object with fabric rugs I have for him or herself.

-Sometimes I'm not available for a talk, so be aware that don't drag me into a long conservation that if I'm working in my studio, but don't hesitate to ask if you need anything.

-Take me (us) a picture to record the moments.

What I Can Share with Hosts

It really depends what kinds of hosts you are. I am broad-minded and multi-disciplinary but not always talkative. I'm absorbed sometimes in the silence. But you can ask me any questions and we can discuss if they are meaningful.
