About Me


Do stuff! Anything, really. As long as it's fun.


I run an internet-based business and I usually end up working all day on a sunny terrace. I am by no means a party freak but I’m not a stuck up nerd either. I mostly enjoy sharing a drink and a meal with my friends. I’m a bit shy too. Otherwise I’m clean and respectful of others property and lifestyle. I’ll let you discover the rest!


Chill out. You’ll live longer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to participate to the CS project mostly because I think it’s a wonderful way to start a trip somewhere and to meet people I otherwise never would have met. In my home town and group of friends, I’m usually the one that goes to the stranger and tries to make him or her feel welcomed and at home. I would like to give that to others, and hopefully, meet people with the same state of mind. After all, there’s nothing like a local’s advice on what to do when you get to a new place!


I don't even know where to start, there are so many now. I haven't been disappointed once so far. Croatia, Quebec, Paris, Cancun...


Latin dances, folk dances, cinema, role playing games, reading, yoga, pilates, running, swimming, bike rides, sailing, whitewater sports, astronomy, music, history, legends and folklore, cooking, beer, hanging out with my friends (preferably with a beer).

Music, Movies, and Books

My absolute favorite book: Petit Prince.
Best movie I've seen lately: Juno.
Music: pretty much anything besides rap and hardcore metal. I like blends of style (say electro mixed with traditional african beats and singing).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lick my plate at a fancy restaurant.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to cook! Don't get too excited, I'm not a French chef. I just like to cook but I am French.
I can also teach you how to dance salsa. I'm not good at it, but good enough to teach a rookie.
