About Me

PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING : I CAN'T HOST MORE THAN 1 PERSON AT A TIME
Unfortunately I can't host more than 1 person at a time (small flat), sorry...
but I'm still up for hanging out though ;)

ABOUT ME

Living & breathing music ;)

I've played and been playing in many bands in different genres (from jazz to metal, rap, funk, electro/psychedelic, african and arabic traditional music, etc...) but here's my main band Rhesus (I compose and play most of the things in studio and play the bass live) :
Our 1st EP :

PHILOSOPHY

There are no problems, only solutions ;)
So be creative, open, and have fun !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It all started in Denmark in 2012 where we were hosted by wonderful people as I was touring there with 2 amazing singers :D
Then when getting back I was so happy to have met these lovely people that I wanted to now be able to host and make new friends and be helpful to travelers :)

I host more than I surf, sometimes travel with, but every time the excitement is the same as the beginning so that's what I love !

So that's why I'm on CS, meeting amazing people and that are different !
(I don't necessarily only host people that have common interests with me, because I like to share different points of view and perspectives and most often that's how I discover new stuff or understand better some ways of thinking).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Touring with my band through Europe => lots of nice and awesome people we met !!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a guitar/bass teacher, studied astrophysics as well, I'd be glad to exchange a couch for guitar/bass lessons ;)

I'm interested in learning anything that can be interesting hehe ! I mean, anything can be interesting to be learnt if the person who tells you about it believes and is passionate about it I think ;)
I like discovering/learning new languages though

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share food, stupid jokes, random discussions, chilling time as much as party time, music and most important that sums it up : friendship!
