Starting various one-piece collections
French Canadian from English Canada living in French Canada.
I have a bachelor in Political Science and French litterature as well as a Masters in Porfessional translation (English to French).
I used to do some theatre in high school and university but I haven't done so in a long time.
I was involved in the Student movement in Quebec during the 2005 and 2012 strikes.
I'm pretty laid back and open to all sorts of people and experiences.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Before having a profile, I helped friends guide and entertain couchsurfers they hosted. I hope to participate more.
My girlfriend has hosted a few people and I have helped her show them around Montréal.
