About Me


Hosting my first couchsurfer in my house / Héberger notre 1er couchsurfer à Shefford


Born in Granby (Quebec, Canada) where I lived until 1995. 3 year for a Actuarial Mathematics diploma at Quebec City and a way brought me at Paris in summer 98. Initially went there for traveling, I started to work there a month and half after my arrival.

I stayed in Paris for 13 years and last summer we left Paris and came back to live at Shefford in Quebec.

I was a CouchSurfing addict in Paris I hosted more than 200 people. Now we will continue to host but less often... anyway Shefford is less visited than Paris! ;)


Live in harmony with our small planet!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


1) Hosting, Surfing & Meeting
2) Work to fix the city database
3) I took part in french television report and in documentary. I will try to help the media in France when they contact us.
3) Attended at the CouchSurfing Collective in Montreal.
4) Was a Global Ambassador and location team leader during many year... now still participate on some task but I have less free time to help.
