About Me


meet new friends


I try to be helpful, available and "bon vivant"
I moved to Ardèche in August 2014. Before that I lived 9 years in Paris, 6 years in the USA and 7 years in Central America.
I enjoy meeting new people, getting to know them and making friends.
I love travelling, exploring cities. I love trying local food (and drinks).


Respect others don't judge them
Treasure frienship

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In each travel, I have lived extraordinary experiences. From sharing the life of indigenous people in Honduras,climbing volcanos in El Slavador or Nicaragua, living on a farm in Colombia, to getting very close to whales in the St Laurent river in Quebec or trying to follow the tracks of my family in Croatia, Slovakia and Italy.
Too hard to single out one experience. Everyday life can be pretty extraordinary !

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to teach and learn about cooking, languages and art.
