About Me


to be of service to my immediate community.. ... my main mission is to create, writing, lobbying, making soups, directing documentaries, etc..


I'm simple and complex, extroverted and shy at the same time. I'm empathetic, loyal and often interested in bigger philosophical questions. Inequity and injustice get me up the walls. I'm québécoise.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I've met over 5 CSs for drinks and outings around time. It's been absolutely brilliant. There are now friends.


oh! yes, when i was 19, my highschool friend and i were stranded in paris, there was a strike, trains, and we met this couple we figured were way old (hum they were younger than i am now probably) and they just took pity on us or felt we weren't any harm and let us stay in their LR and it was great. i hardly remember the experience but i remember their quilts - quilt were not something we used in québec then, well, their quilts were yellow. :)


integrity and coherence in :

in people you care about

in art
in language including deaf language

in sipping a café au lait on saturday with a good paper
in super simple yet beautiful things..............

Music, Movies, and Books

movies: most everything except science fiction. mainly indy films.
music: all all all except intense heavy metal, raw hip hop and screeching jazz...books: i would die if they didn't exist. i even read the back of cereal boxes, back of shampoo bottles if there's nothing to read...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

seen: the stars in the israel desert: a cluster of white stars, more white than the black of the sky. amazing.
made you think you were one but a tiny star clustered to tons of others.
done: spelunking in gramat with great people i was interviewing for a series airing on nat geo in september 2007.
