About Me


every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. OW


i wrote down a few definitions... and ended up deleting all of them... next question

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


hosting every now and then, and surfing whenever I can too.

I also started some time ago trying to record one or two songs of every musician I hosted, we'll see what comes from taht!


have hosted quite a lot of people and surfed a lot too, for about 4 or 5 years now... so far, so good! haven't bumped into any serial killer yet.


I play guitar and a little bit of piano and drums. I studied neurosciences and i'm working on building a phd in music-brain, let's see how that works out...

I enjoy going to the cinema, documentaries, outdoor sports (climbing, skiin'...), cooking (or even better eating someone elses plates) photography.. table tennis, dancing...



Music, Movies & Books

"the indian runner" struck me. fire! I love the thelma and louise sort of films, bad lands, natural born killers... also classics from won kar wai or cohen brothers, thomas anderson, wim wenders..

David Simon's series the Wire and Treme are wonderful.

some books that I liked. the Heart of Darkness_joseph conrad (apocalypsis now), The dispossessed_Ursula K Le Guin... noah gordon the doctor... 1984, the road - mccarthy' m on the road_franny and zooey

music... I like folk, 60s, fine harmonies sort of CSNY, loving spoonful... lately I've been listening to the avett brothers, bon iver.. but I really enjoy all kinds. from old delta blues to 60s soul or pop the kinks, leonard cohen... I listen to Manel and the knife and Jonathan WIlson...
