About Me


Make the world a better place, little by little, every day.


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 quite in love with Montreal, even though I'v only been here for three years. I would be happy to help you make the most out of your stay in the city!


If you're not trying to solve the problem, it's because you're part of it. Stop complaining and start acting!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had some truly 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.


Discovering new places in Montreal or elsewhere, being out of my comfort zone, laughing, having an authentic conversation, being with my loved ones and food, food, food!!

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Mommy, Slumdog Millionaire, Forrest Gump, C.R.A.Z.Y.,
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, Charlotte Cardin, Les Colocs, DJ Champion, Loco Locass)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I climbed 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 ever 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 love to talk about psychology and personal growth, if you're interested :)

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! ;)

****I will surely refuse your request if you send me a generic message asking for a free place to stay. For me, Couchsurfing is about meeting people with whom we want to share something. Please save us the waste of time and move on to the next host if you are that kind of guest! :)****

Belgium, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Guatemala, Italy, Luxembourg, Morocco, Netherlands, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Spain, United States
