About Me


Having good time discovering the world and share.


Art, music, nature, sport.. I'm a freelance Interactive media designer, video jockey

Curious mind, l need to explore, meet people and visit places.
Suddenly l can take my shoes or my bike, and it's time to hike !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It gives me hope when l can so simply open my door to a stranger. And doors open lets lot of positive thing coming in. We can share, learn and respect each others, so much more than the closed doors of individualism. It is also fascinating to discover my place again when l see it from the eyes of a stranger. And I like to get advises from host they are the best guides and gives de the best welcome in a travel :-)

Music, Movies, and Books

Music and movies addict. Long time fan of SF, movies, comics and japanese cyberpunk,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In the night, l went at the top of the hill's field, enjoying the dark for watching the shooting stars event. At the top, there was already someone silently lying in the grass, to whom l only saw the shape on the ground.

He gently accepted that l lay here too. We shared the night sky, few words about astronomy and the silence. It was still dark when we said good night and left each other in our own directions with the mystery of only knowing our names and that's all. We'll never meet again. How could we know it ? And thankful for that.

As peaceful as unusual, for an anonymous meeting in the dark. Perfect :-)
