About Me


To be strong enough to survive a desert, and sane enough to survive a city.


i am most active when i am happy, and most happy when i am active.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't thought of how yet.


Pleasure & pride in speaking & listening well; environmentalism; health; the transition from childhood to maturity; learning from metaphors, including religious ones; learning how to avoid what one has decided is bad; good ideas in history, economics, technology, literature, and art. Reflection.

Music, Movies, and Books

Jean Vigo, Bertolucci, Antonioni, Kurosawa, Charlie Chaplin, Fritz Lang, very old movies in general. Russian novels, Hermann Hesse, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, Les memoirs d'Hadrian_ de Marguerite Yourcenar <-- c'est mon top. I like most music, especially if it is offered with a sincere heart.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The giant clock in Amsterdam as the year turned 2000.

Teach, Learn, Share

Most of my life until now has been spent in reading and learning. Consequently, I know quite a bit about history and maths and related subjects. However, I don't know how to fix a pipe, or a car, or a computer. I would like to learn how to build, how to engineer, how to create and monitor something useful.

Countries I’ve Visited

France, Italy, Spain

Countries I’ve Lived In

Canada, United States
