About Me

-->I'm traveling in South America right now, for an undetermined period of time!

I like to laugh, meet new people, debate, relax, be outdoor, drink beer/coffee/tea/orange juice... with music. I like to live new experiences and challenge myself!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It began in 2010 in Morocco, it's an awesome way to travel! Through CS, I met nice hosts everywhere around the world and I had equally nice guests at my apartment, with only good experiences.


Music. I play drums and guitar, I'm not in an official band but I jam with friends regularly back home. I have some harmonicas in my backpack, I'd love to get any tip on how to play it!
Mountains. I love the outdoors, and I like to hike, climb, ski, bike. Actually, I like all kinds of sports. I'm traveling with my climbing gear right now and would love to know the local crags.
Sciences. I just finished a master in mechanical/biomedical engineering and I really like it.
Bitterness. Good beers, coffee, and chocolate. A moka stout does it all!

Music, Movies, and Books

About music, I don't want to give examples because my favorites bands are the ones I don't know yet! What I listen to evolves constantly, and I think that genres are like ingredients in a recipe, they're better mixed. Blues is my favorite spice.

As for books and movies, my repertoire is somewhat limited. I'd say what I loved the most was from Jack Kerouac, Boris Vian, and the Cohen Brothers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Drinking Guinness with friends at 6AM on St-Patrick's Day, at the top of a mountain in Quebec while the sun is rising, after a hike in the cold winter night, and listening to Dropkick Murphy's Shipping Up to Boston while driving back home. Perfect mix!
