About Me

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 in Morocco, USA, Indonesia, Australia and Canada, and only had good experiences. Now I want to give back!


Music. I play drums, I'm not in an official band but I jam with friends regularly. I'm learning guitar, and when I'll find a way to stop time, I'll learn harmonica and sing the blues.
Mountains. I love the outdoors, and I like to hike, climb, ski, bike. Actually I like all kinds of sports, soccer among the most...
Sciences. I am doing 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... 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!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you by far the best thing to eat after a night at the pub, Quebec's famous and only : Ashton's poutine.
