About Me


have a passport full of stamps


I'm a graphic designer / photographer living in Montreal since 2001 and I'm in love with my city. I had a chance to travel to some amazing places and meet some great people thanks to Couchsurfing. Sharing stories and passions all around the world!


Finding inspiration in ordinary things...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined Couch Surfing in 2009 and had my first trip in August that year. I spent a month couchsurfing around the UK and met a lot of amazing, great people. Since then, I participated in few meetings, met people to show around my city. I didn't have a chance to host a lot yet, but I hope I will be able to do it more often.


Met interesting people from all around the world with whom I still keep in touch.


Photographing, drawing, reading, exploring, falling in love with different places.
