About Me


To discover the world, myself and other people.


I like poetry, music and travelling. I finished my studies in anthropology with a big interest in people.

I am currently working as a self-development trainer and I am running an NGO for youth education.

I am playing in an improv theatre group and I'm doing Slam Poetry which is a very strong experience. Writing makes you pay attention to the details of the inner and outer world.


Anybody who crosses paths with you can teach you something valuable.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed since 2013 when I made street performing trips around Europe. Since then, I hosted different couchsurfers from around the world and I am open for new CS experiences.

I met great people with impressive life stories, warm hearts full of generosity.

One of the most beautiful CS experiences was in Sahara where we've been hosted in the huts of a Saharaoui camel owner.


In my busy time I create educational projects for youth using improvisation theatre, dance and slam poetry.

I sometimes host artistic, or cultural events in the city. But still, my first passion is to meet new people and share our different ways of doing things.

I am more like an outdoor active person, so mountains, seas, gardens are places where I feel like home.
