About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I would prefer not to

ABOUT ME

I wish I was a sailor, an astronomer, an explorer, a priest, a revolutionizer, a photographer, a philosopher or even far better a poet... but I grew up and now I understand one can be all of these at the same time. I was born in Aix a few decades ago and it seems to me it was an other life. It was.I was traveling a lot, mostly in Europe or in the US, and I loved it. I have very few friends but in a few countries, used to work for foreign companies and tried many couches all around the world. Obviously mine is available for any traveler.I love meeting people but I usually expect too much. The more different from me is the better though. I really need to struggle against my natural pessimism about human nature but I want to understand everything I see, all people I meet and the languages I hear. I'm starting a new life in Brussels for a few months now so you'll be more than welcome if you want to share the experience with me.

PHILOSOPHY

"Je suis homme et rien de ce qui est humain, je crois, ne m'est etranger."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Sincerely

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

as in real life... maybe a bit better.

Interests

Literature, philosophy, poetry, music, theater, painting, sculpture, opera, cinema, food, wine, poker. And the most difficult, trying to share it with people...

Actually quite focused on analog B&W photo!

Oh... I'm not a big sports fan, except maybe for Rugby.

Music, Movies & Books

List is too long and I hate making lists.I'm obsessed by a few writers those last years and it's not getting better. Stendhal, Merleau-Ponty, Nietzsche, Valery, Pessoa and Michaux are definitely there.
