About Me




I'm an idealistic, passionate and spontaneous person.
I love starting new projects. I enjoy sharing with people what we learned on the life road, especially stories, passions, art.
I grew up in a small village, then I'm still a nature lover.
Just listening the wind in the trees make me happy.


Each person is an artist, and our masterpiece is our life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am warmely received all the time by great persons when I am travelling! I'm sorry that I can't receive you, I travel too much to have my own house. But soon, I'll find a place to be, and receive you. Waiting that day, I offer my time for travellers who are on visit into Montreal.


I always had great times with surfers, I love it! That's a beautiful way to travel. Thanks all of you!
