About Me

Pilates coach, live in France and work in Geneva, since 2006.
I'm easy going and take time to live and enjoy the day, I like sports, visits and museums but chatting with a local around coffee often enriches me more.
I also like quiet time, reading, ...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to travel, and meet people who do live there, I can afford hotels, but being in a place with an actual soul makes a difference in the trip. I don't "crash" on hosts's couches, I'm a mature educated well travel adult, I don't need to be entertained but I will like to get to know you and what you enjoy about your city/surroundings.


I am curious, so any change in my routine is welcome!

Music, Movies, and Books

Baroque music is my favorite but I also listen to Morsheeba or Madonna
My favorite books are about anthropology (D.Diamond, D.Graeber...) philosophy (Precht, Onfray,...) but also love the french 19th century literature (Maupassant) and today's amazing style of Philippe Claudel and Jean Rouaud. And the peanuts!!!
Love american independant films (day trippers,...), australian (Lantana), english, spanish, italian...
Allways looking for advices on gay art (literature, movies, expo,...) so I don't have to translate...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Understand that happiness is now.
Several beautifull souvenirs of travels, Kruger park, Argentina, Bolivia, Thailand, California, ...
The bests are yet to come?...

Teach, Learn, Share

Show me things you do or know in fields I am stranger to.
If available I will like to show you areas of Geneva I like.
Happy to share knowledge in my job (teaching Pilates), I don't need to climb kilimandjaro, a dinner and a good laugh makes my day.
