About Me


to walk one day, on the moon


I'm a young guy doing research in physics who loves spending time with inhabitants while travelling to get a better flavor of the cities I visit.

I live in Paris for my PhD since September 2016 and I am still arguing with my roommates so that they accept that we host from time to time couchsurfers.

I am kind of interested in everything, really curious and love talking with people completely different from me.

I cannot drink coffee because I am already an hyperactive guy.


Ain't got no... I got life!


I have been playing the saxophone for 15+ years.I like playing jazz, but do not play regularly anymore... I love cooking (french cuisine, and pastry (macarons)), eating (!), going to the cinema, travelling (especially on my bicycle) and above all organizing random spontaneous events at my place.

I play tennis, used to be a handball player, and have started climbing (bouldering actually) two years ago.
I love skiing, my father comes from the Alpes and we often make big hikes together.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveling without money, begging for food and hospitality, taking notes of the addresses of all the people who helped me, and sending them at the end of my trip a letter to thank each of them.

Climbing at night the wall of the Chateau de Versailles.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to blow in your hands and make music,
how to walk on your hands.
I would love to learn anything from anyone during my trip.
