About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get out of this class alive, or more seriously help out and meet people!

ABOUT ME

I was born in New York and grew up Singapore (15 years!); both my parents are French which explains the weird Surname! I moved to Paris for my studies and lived there for 2 years, and then I went "up north" in Lille to finish my studies and stayed there for another three years. I moved back to Paris last year, so I could finish my studiesI studied Law and Business (Master in Management) at the same time, and successfuly passed the French bar exam this year, so I am well on my way of becoming a lawyer!I'm currently crashing at my grandparent's place, who have an absolutely beautiful apartment just at the edge of Paris, and who are absolutely never home, so I've got the place to myself. I'm currently finishing my studies at the French Lawyer school so I should be pretty available outside of classes to do stuff normaly!I don't really enjoy talking too much about myself, so if you want to get to know me, come and visit!

PHILOSOPHY

-The truth always comes out in the end
-Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven
-Between the strong and the weak, it is Freedom that oppresses and Law that liberates
-Better to be without logic than without feeling
-If there ain't no solution, there ain't no problem
-All that I know is that I know nothing

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

This is my first attempt at couch surfing so I can't say I'm doing much for the project itself but hell, I have more than a few couches so I thought I might as well lend them to those in need!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I actually discovered CS in Canada on a road trip with some friends. We were hosted by folks down in Toronto and I immediately fell in love with the concept. Since then I've been trying to bring my stone to the edifice!

Interests

Too many to list them all but I'll try and put as many as I can.
Rugby, sports, bars, party, party, books, music (I'm actually trying to learn the guitar), politics, law (hell, if I'm gonna be a lawyer I might as well like it!) and above all, I'm interested in people!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'll answer this question as in "The thing I'm most proud of", and that would have to be the humanitarian work I've done when I was in Singapore. I've had the most eye opening experiences during those missions and I would gladly define those as amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not an extraordinarily talented person; can't sing, or dance, or play the guitar or whatnot but I'm always willing to help out and am hardly afraid of answering "I don't know", so hell, if you think I can teach you something just shoot. I really believe that the best way to learn something is to simply talk with someone!
