About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Reintegrating in the student life after living in France...

ABOUT ME

I love sports or any activity which doesn't require months of planning. I'm very into languages, I mean, I easily learn them and I'm fascinated by the aspect of how languages bring people together, enabling them to develop and exchange ideas.
Music is an essential part of my life: listening to it can either reflect or express feelings. Playing accordion, guitar or singing is one of the greatest joys for me and makes me become one with the music.
I'm sometimes a thinker, sometimes a doer. Building things with my own hands or learning it fascinates me as well as talking about your view of the world, your reality, your ideas...

J'adore le sport et toutes les activités qui nécéssitent pas trop de préparation. Les langues m'ont toujours fasciné, c'est-à-dire je les apprends facilement et pour moi ce sont elles qui mettent les gens en contact et qui nous permettent de développer et d'échanger des idées.
La musique joue aussi un rôle essentiel dans ma vie: l'écouter peut autant refleter qu'exprimer des sentiments. Jouer de l'accordéon, de la guitare ou chanter, c'est un des plus grands plaisirs pour moi et je peux ainsi m'unir à la musique.
Je suis parfois un penseur, parfois un "faiseur". Fabriquer des choses à main et l'apprendre me fascine ainsi que de parler de ta vue du monde, ta réalité, tes idées...

"Quand on est convaincu d'une chose, elle devient la réalité, notre réalité."
(L. Gounelle)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Travelled several days with a French trucker: France - Spain - France.

Went inside a river cave!

Made a living from busking in Cornwall.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can explain things quite well. Mostly things I know. So ask me for something (e.g. accordion lesson, french or german language, hitchhiking advice, repairing bicycles...)!

I'd like to learn more about cooking, our mind and chi kung.

Je sais expliquer bien ce que je connais. Donc, demande-moi quelque chose (cours d'accordéon, l'allemand vs. le français, conseils pour le stop, réparer le vélo...)!

En ce moment, j'aimerais apprendre plus sur la cuisine, la conscience et le chi kung.
