About Me

Since I'm little, I want life to be as fun as it is in books, movies and series. And achieving such a goal is not always the easiest thing, but it lead me through a really interesting path.
For a few years now I've been working on a novel (some kind of science fiction story, with a dash of love, adventure and action) which is the greatest experience since it allows me to discover life in its full spectrum (because it makes me a kind of Life scientist ; I have to test and analyse things in order to talk about them in my books).
I'm currently working as a freelance translator ; I'm just crazy about languages and I decided to try and make a living out of it. On my spare time, I translate TED Talks videos as a volunteer translator.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've had my share of amazing experiences on Couchsurfing. I just love meeting people from around the world and discover their way to look at things, and discover a place with people living there, who make the everyday soul of this place.

Interests

I'm a very curious person, so my interests are actually very broad. I just think it depends of how you enter a subject, but if you're with the right person, who knows how to share her or his passion, then everything can be just wonderfully interesting.
