About Me


Here and now


I love everything provided that it has been made with soul. I am interested in any kind of art. I practise the art of cooking myself quite well. I love nature and places where there are no road nor electricity. I love exchanging with people. My richness is my friends.I am a tall sensitive ironic guy.visited 49 states (21.7%)Create your own visited map of The World or another interesting project


Le soleil n'est jamais aussi beau qu'un jour ou l'on se met en route. (Jean Giono)
The sun is never as beautiful as the day you take the road.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Now that I am living in Paris, I can guide people and teach some salsa. I also meet CS abroad mainly in Morocco, Ethiopia, Georgia, Namibia since I am working there some weeks per year


I have welcome and meet CS abroad, been involved and organized a lot of local CS activities. I have met some good friends thanks to CS and broadened my horizon.
