About Me

I work as researcher in computer science. I've my kids one week other two, so got a room available one week other two!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people and discuss about all and nothing.
As a host, to renew the ancient tradition of hospitality. As a guest, because it's definitively the best way to travel, especially alone, and that's only marginally a question of budget.

I really appreciate to share but please do not consider couchsurfing just as free hostel. So, some simple rules for travelers:
- Be contactable, I consider a couchsurfer that goes out and come back when he wants as impolite
- But also be independent, I no longer organize my schedule for couchsurfers (too many stand up), but you are usually welcome to join my activities

Disclaimer : you just found a low cost air plane ticket, and decided that Nice is a destination between other ? Good for you, and bad for the climate change and living conditions in touristic destinations. In such a case, you should not bother to contact me; anyway you may not read upon this point ;). Other travelers are much welcome.

And of course : Couchsurfing is not about dating.


I'm always looking after small/medium independent/alternative concerts (no tributes!) in small place or even at somebody's home, theater plays, art/independent movies, .... I will bring you if you want, I could even find them in your own city ;-)

I organise board game events at home through couchsurfing or other platforms, if you stay long, you may be able to assist also.

I usually go everywhere in every city by bike (shared bike system when available), I will provide you one when you are with me in Nice.

My humble photography attempts :

  • theater
  • photography
  • cooking
  • yoga
  • board games
  • cycling
  • hiking

Music, Movies, and Books

Books : My favorites are written by Italo Calvino, Dino Buzzati, Yukio Mishima, Herman Melville, Vladimir Nabokov, Mikhaïl Bougalkov, Philip K. Dick, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, John Fante, Charles Bukowski, Romain Gary/Emile Ajar, Egeune Ionesco, Ismael Kadare, ...
Music : Quite eclectic (plug on fip) but always indie !
Movies : so much...
