About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Spread love all over :) ALLLL OVERRRR

ABOUT ME

I really really want to make it as a singer, songwriter. I released my first album last year with a French Label from Montreal, and I'm currently working on a hopefully 10x better second CD... I feel more comfortable onstage than in real life, because real life is scary.

I like music, poetry, collages, drinking tea, smoking weed, talking philosophy or politics or sociology... And at night I love to dance and party!

I like smiley faces :) :) :) :)

PHILOSOPHY

Express yourself, FEEL, fall in love, LIVE!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I live at the coop sur généreux. We host many many couchsurfers. We are 12 people living in an awesome 2 story building. We have movie screenings, concerts,

Check out "Coop Généreux" on CS if you ever pass by Montreal!!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfed abit in New Orleans during Mardi Gras last January... It was perfect!

We've hosted many many couchsurfers from all over the world at the coop where I live. If it's the weekend, there's usually a party or a good show going on somewhere, and very often the party is usually at our house!

Every last saturday of the month, I host a Cabaret Open Mic night at our place, where crazy talented musicians from Montreal and from abroad come together and perform for 10 mins each, followed by a big jam party / dance night (we have a beautiful wooden floor that's just perfect for dancing to swing or funk)

I love partying with the couchsurfers :) I'm hoping that in my travels I'll meet some party people as well to take me out!

Interests

I sing alot of soul, jazz, blues, folk, and kinda hiphop-ish music as well. and write songs, my first album is french indie pop :)

I'm also really into the Occupy movement and the student movement that happened here in Montreal last spring.

Now that the protests are over, i'm still awake and I try to do my part to make the world a better place. We're the future, it's up to our generation tu unfuck this fucked up society! ..Right?

I like food. I love cooking (altho im not that great), and I absolutely love eating at cheap delicious restaurants :) I know a bunch of those in Montreal

Music, Movies & Books

Music I listen to: Soul, Blues, Reggae, Dub, 50s swing and rock music, some jazz, Psychedelic, indie pop, some Dubstep, old skool Hip Hop, dancehall, latin music

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I did a trekking trip in the Himalayas 2 summers ago. We walked inside a cloud during a thunderstorm: lightings were purple and were just a few meters away from us, and the thunder felt like explosions, it was scary but awesome! Then once we got up to the top, we were over the clouds and it felt like we were on a floating island in the sky, it was absolutely beautiful !!!

This may sound cheesy, but march 22nd there was a big protest in Montreal against the tuition hikes. It was an incredibly festive event, and it was incredibly inspiring to see all these people out on the streets united: we were 200 000! It felt great to be part of a historic event like that, plus in my own city! ahh I love Montreal :)

Teach, Learn, Share

We are in a great need of a revolution right now, for the sake of our planet and for the human race.

The revolution starts with you. Read, watch documentaries, then share the information! Then once you know enough to make u sick of the human race, do things about it! Boycott companies, consume local, etc
