About Me


My name is Nicolas and what makes me the happiest person is to travel and meet new people.
Ah and good beers too.

I'm a big fan of any kind of music, I am always trying to know what is the new artist I must listen. I love music festivals and live concerts.

Having a good conversation in a bar/pub/hut/igloo/tent with drinks or a nice cup of coffee is brilliant.

Let's meet!

Feel free to send me a message.

I just moved to Queenstown December 9th! I should be here for quite a while, it would be nice to meet new people!
