About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Change the world, one person at a time.

ABOUT ME

I'm curious and open-minded. I like to meet new people and listen to their stories. That's probably why I'm a psychologist! Most of the time I prefer to listen and learn from others, but if I feel comfortable enough, I have lots of stories to share too!

I'm a citizen of the world. I was born in some piece of land named Canada, but we're all from the same planet and we're so much more alike than we are different!

I have many passions in life but my first one is travelling! I've had the chance to travel a lot, but I'm far from over!

PHILOSOPHY

If you're not trying to solve the problem, it's because you're part of it. Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
Stop complaining and start acting.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had some wonderful CS experiences in Panama, Quebec, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Peru and Montreal. I absolutely love it. CouchSurfing is one of the things that shows the best part of humankind.

Interests

Travelling, listening to good music, meeting nice people and eating good food!

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Slumdog Millionaire, Forrest Gump, C.R.A.Z.Y., Hasta la vista...
Music: Muse, Mika, MJ, Santana, Phil Collins, Cat Stevens, Florence and the machine, David Bowie... and a lot of music from Québec that I can make you discover! (La bottine souriante, Ariane Moffat, Mes Aïeux, Les Colocs, DJ Champion, Loco Locass)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've climb the volcano Pacaya, in Guatemala. It was active and we were able to approach the lava flow to grilled some marshmallows over it!

I cycled 60km between two cities in the Netherlands (Rotterdam and Gouda) without leaving a bike path!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm learning Spanish and I would really enjoy to practice it more! In exchange, it would be a pleasure to teach you some French.
I want to learn how to play «Viva la vida loca» with every instrument possible! Currently, I can play it with a guitar, a piano and a flute.

I can teach you how to do chocolate, cupcakes, great Moroccan couscous and the best salad in the world (as seen in my pictures)!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I’m really busy, but I can offer you my sofa-bed or a single bed in a spare room (when i don’t have any roommate), some tips about the city and hopefully a nice chat if we both have time! If you tell me that you can cook you’ll probably win your place on my sofa-bed! ;)
