About Me

Hi, my name is François.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am into couchsurfing because I like to travel, and I like to exchange with people in general. Furthermore, I think that couchsurfing is a good way to discover a town/country and its folks.


I'm musician (guitarist and singer), mechanic, sound technician. I am running a blues band in Paris, and collaborate often with artists. For instance, at the moment, I am part of a musical show about black music roots.
