About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Improve my understanding and becoming a better person.

ABOUT ME

I have been living abroad the last few years (Czech Republic, Syria, Laos, Indonesia, Burma, The Netherlands) and it taught me to be flexible and enjoy the tiny things in life. I wouldn't say i am an experienced traveler, but i have been travelling enough to understand that the beauty of a travel lies in the people you meet on the way.

On a more pragmatic aspect, i am currently living in Paris where i am an academic advisor and trainer for teachers of French as a foreign languages.

Which means i can probably give you french lessons if you wish to ;)

*I WILL BE MOVING TO SYDNEY IN SEPTEMBER, ANY SYDNEY-RELATED TIPS ARE WELCOME :)*
*SINCE I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF A LIFE CHANGE, AND BASICALLY CURRENTLY DONT HAVE A PLACE OF MY OWN I CANT HOST YOU, SORRY :(*

I am 30, i enjoy partying every now and then but am far from being a party animal.

Im a music freak ! Unfortunately i dont play much but theres nowhere i can go without my headphones on. I'm always in for sharing music, go to gigs or anything related to it. If you ever come to my place, something really lovely to have along is some music on a hard disk !

Politics and society matters are also my thing. Im pretty much of an activist freak and im committed to different organizations in France, especially advocating lgbt rights and feminism. Basically the defense of any individual rights.

PHILOSOPHY

Everybody is interesting. Every place is worth visiting. Every experience is worth living.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far I had great experiences surfing and hosting, or just attending to CS meetings.

Interests

Music, Movies & Books

Oh man, so many. I'm a music freak, and a bit of a nerd when it comes to books. We could discuss about that together when we meet :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Dunno if I did really amazing things, but I sure have met amazing people.

Teach, Learn, Share

I dont know any fancy stuff like sculpting bronze, playing some crazy instruments or juggling with fire but I can teach you some french (thats my job) if you feel like.
