About Me

Sharing a smile, creativity, and a thousand laughs


I organize expeditions across the world by using art to communicate with people and understand the cultural difference. I love doing participatory painting, and I could do one with you too ;)

I lived 5 months in the desert with the Aymara ancestral community in Bolivia, 3 months in the immensity of the seaice, with the Inuit in Greenland, 3 months crossing the Balkans mountains by foot on 1300km. And, I can't stop doing crazy adventures and enjoying the beauty of life in France too :)

When I am hiking on mountains and crossing arid deserts, there are always unexpected things happening. But I learned to be positive in any circumstances: see something as a problem is just one interpretation. A problem can be transformed as a possibility to follow a new way.

I am an easy-going, smiling person and always in a good mood. I think smiling is the best gift that you can give to someone.
SO pleaseeee, let's smilleee and enjoy each moment ! We have only one life :)

I am always looking for new collaborations with people as you learned so much during this process!
If you like my work, let's talk about how can we collaborate to create something unique.


Carpe diem: Take advantage of the present moment favoring the positive aspect of the days(Unfortunately, it's very easy to forget)

I like to say that "chance doesn't exist, there is only meeting" I believe that we are the only master of our destiny. If you want to reach a special goal, waiting for "luck" will not change anything. Because by waiting, you are not in action and if an opportunity is coming, you will not be ready to take it ;) that's why, my philosophy is to be in action all the time (Even if it is quite difficult)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

- Sometimes I organise night hikes to discover the mysterious atmosphere of the night. During the walking day, we need only to see. Walking at night, it's to forget the sense of sight: the landscape hasn't colors, we don't distinguish the spaces but only forms. So, naturally, we focus on the sounds (animals, our footsteps, falling rain, wind) and smells (wood, water ...) It's good for our imagination! ;) Nature takes a new dimension. We appreciate differently the distances, time and speed. Landmarks change and...we walk faster! ;)

- Cooking and sharing food is the best to understand a culture

Teach, Learn, Share

Let's talk about adventure, life in general with a nice dish. I love when people are going a dish from their country. There is no best present for me (especially when it is made with a big smile :D )
