About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discovering something new everyday

ABOUT ME

What could I tell you about myself? I'm currently studying law, but in another life time (2012), I was a foreign correspondant for a small radio station in Chicago. I like to talk politics and philosophy, but I'm also craving a good adrenaline rush and I'm always ready to discover new places, new people and new activities. I'm working as a research assistant for a professor of aboriginal law, wich means that this summer, I can work from anywhere I want in the world. Sadly, the budget doesnt allow me to go very far, but I intend on having an amazing time in cities I can reach by bus or by hitchhiking.

I like museums, the beach, loosing myself in big cities, loosing track of time camping in the forest or hiking mountains, dancing tango until dawn, beer tasting, beer drinking, swimming and a lot of other things.

PHILOSOPHY

I don't believe in boxes and categories, be it of race, gender or age. I believe in human solidarity and in sharing the human experiences.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm a student, so I basically live in a dump. I cannot host you, but it will be my pleasure to help you discover my city. I know a lot about history, politics and what goes on in underground Québec.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Got a lift from a wonderfull couch host in cairo, then crashed the couch of a very nice french guy in Paris who saved me from sleeping in a park. I met wonderful friends, tasted great food and went to memorable parties.
