About Me


the world is wider than you think!


oh well, to be in Paris can be mind-boggling as hell and be totally drown in the francophile universe at the same time. I moved here about a year ago and love the cafe terrace that operates until midnight. always be surprised by meeting people equally mind-boggling from all over the world. i'd love to show and share with you my favourite hang out places, for food, drinks and musics!


finding meaning in things, and nothing is extreme if required :)


cycling in town. a beer or two maybe? and analogue photography.

Music, Movies, and Books

at the moment, paul auster is my favourite. i'm not yet bored with these existentialism questions, and i do it quite often to myself. jonathan safran foer is another craftman. my longtime favourite would be tolkien - in between the fantasy fightings, i find things much more human than the world i experience.

music - perfume genius is my favourite at the moment. he is quite genius simply. i went to his concert in paris, and i could still feel his shivering voice from 100 metres and 6 months away. dirty projector perhaps? and all kind of lo-fi stuff.

movie - david lynch. again, i find the magic he depicts more faithful to our living conditions than my daily errand. christoph herzog also made many classics asking these questions directly.

food - food make from real ingredients. i refer you to what i'm really good at ;)
