About Me


Have fun!


I don't take myself too seriously, and am always looking for the positive, unexpected, fun side of my life. I laugh a lot. I'm studying opera at university (I'm a pianist). When I'm not making music, I love anything outdoors (running, swimming, soccer, snowboarding, hiking/scrambling...), reading, and playing poker.


Be happy. Attitude will get you everywhere!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like hosting during the school year (Sept.-Apr.). Because I am very busy with school, last minute requests (4-1 days ahead of time) are preferred. I will have a harder time committing to being not overwhelmed further in advance. :-) And I'm even more happy to host when in the summer if I'm not travelling!

Je suis aussi heureux d'avoir des surfeurs français!
Sarebbe un po 'difficile da ospitare in italiano, ma mi piace sempre una sfida!


I've surfed in Austria, Germany, and Italy, and have had several fantastic surfers ici à Montréal.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love a lot of music! Classical, Jazz, Latin, and some Pop and Hip-hop. For movies, I love the Increadibles and many of the Pixar films, Ironman, Monty Python, and many French, Italian and Spanish films.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My life is amazing! But if I had to single out one thing, it may be backpacking in the Canadian Rockies, particularly a three day trip through Jasper called the Skyline. Or just about every moment of five weeks I spent in the most beautiful town you're ever seen, just south of Vienna.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've worked for years as a professional pianist and organist. I love learning more about various types of dancing, and really about all sorts of things people are passionate about.
