About Me


To become famous, successful, rich, charismatic and funny so everyone likes me and I can put Freud on the shelf for the rest of my life.


I've just come back from Kunming (China) where I've spent two years learning mandarin, eating great stuffs and doing the regular teaching jobs you can easily get there as a western. I'm currently working on some comic books and hopping I'll be able to make a living out of it someday, although it might take a while.


"Be happy and complain about it." Or perhaps it was "Be yourself and pretend to be your guinea pig." or maybe "Get what you love and start hating it."

ah! quotations...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I like drinking coffee and beer and it's awkward doing it alone. Or maybe not awkward but sad. Well maybe not really sad neither... hum I should try it someday.
