ABOUT ME

The best way to decribe my personnality would be calm and quiet most of the time, not shy though, just not loud when I don't need to be. When it comes to partying, well that's another mater...

I'm living in montreal since august 2007. I'm out going when it comes to couchsurfers. I like showing around and share when the occasion presents itself.

I've studied chemistry and work in laboratories since may 2005, the time of graduation. I like good booze, live music, going to art and museum exhibit from time to time to. Hicking and camping are definitely within my fields of interest!!

I am a vegetarian, vegan at home, so if you want to cook for me, no meat please!

PHILOSOPHY

-Better to reign in hell then being a slave in heaven. Live your live, don't dream it to much. -Treat other and other people's property and things with respect.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Offering my place when it is possible I guess. Sharing what I am and the environment in which I live. Opening up to other people is such a wonderful feeling for most of the time your trust is returned and so prejudiced and hate disappear and leaves place to a new understanding of others.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted and loved it very much, looking forward to have new surfers!! I've been hosted more then once in Iceland, Faroes Island & Toronto. Then when I travel, I usually stay with friends I know not necessary on CS (Czech Republic and Germany for examplein 2013), does it count?! :P

Interests

Music, movies, art, history, geography, culture, astronomy, chemistry...anything could be a good conversation topic if you ask me.

Japanese animation are a big passion for me ever since my teenage years. MUSIC of course and...non the less, BEER, love to taste beer from around the globe.

I love animals to, whatever the sort, even the unusual ones.

What else...street arts, like walls painting or very good graffiti are very impressive for me every time I travel or go around in Montreal.

Music, Movies & Books

Favorite kind of music? Anything from classical to extreme sub genre of heavy-metal. Everything in between would be punk-rock, avant-garde rock and metal, progressive, trip-hop, reggae and folk. I do like some indie-rock, electronic, rock'n'roll and new wave (bring back the 80's-early 90s) as well. Very open to listen to new things generally. If you want me to like you instantly, bring a hard drive and give me free music, I would be very grateful.

As for books; novels based on historical fact about any civilization is always good to read while traveling. Novel (fiction or not) like kundera or Kafka are always recommendable as well.

I'm also into horror and epic movies and books or fantastic. I really enjoyed movies in which there's something interesting to learn or to move you and initiated a reflection on a particular and important topic...(Sofia Copolla, David Lynch, Lars Von Trier, Miyasaki, Chen Kaige, etc...).

Documentaries on Food industry/social-political issues are also very interesting for me.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Lol...why, if you wish to know, come to my place have a drink and a little chat!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I wish to learn about different languages, foods, music and art, culture and histories from other countries. And I wish that surfers I host just enjoy the city. Montreal is a great and cool place. If people are happy with their experience then it's cool. And if they come back, it's even better!!
