About Me


I would prefer not to


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.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




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


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, and 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.
