About Me


realizing one of my dream : to be a lacquer craftman


I quite my job in a nice company to learn lacquer work for 6 months in Korea. The plan is to open my own atelier back home and make some furnitures and objects using this ancestral technique.
I guess I need some freedom more than money, some adventure more than routine, some doubts more than certainties. I try to make my life spicy to feel it more even if I am a calm and reflected guy.


The consequences of our existence are our artwork. So be conscious and feel free!
Eat 5 fruits & vegetables a day also.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


May be I should talk about how couchsurfing participated in my life. A few years ago I met a funny and wondering Korean guy during a couchsurfing meeting in my Hometown. We became flatmate... Well, at this chapter it ends at : I live in Busan Korea to learn an ancestral craft and 2 Korean people are taking care of my house plant in Lyon .


Meeting and partying ! Still waiting for the first guest. I plan to go to Japan and around Korea soon so I may need some help !


I love listening and playing music as much as I can. I learned drum and played in some bands. I would like to restart a new project back home.
Traveling far away of course, but also to the Alpes mountains close to my city and come back with some delicious cheeses. At anytime, winter, spring or summer. the best way to fill up with energy.
Capoeira is my other passion, a 2nd family, a open window on something else, something true and too abstract to describe but interesting to share.
