About Me

I just arrived in Malmö to start a new job and a new life.
I am a technician in cryogenics process which cool down a particules accelerator in Lund at The European Spallation Source.
It means i'm operating and maintaining facilities which are producing liquid helium at -269.15°C!!! I'm also initiating what is cryogenics and magnetism to student between 8-18 years old.
I'm really enjoying my job because work in a international research institut when your are curious is really interesting.
Actually it’s having an Erasmus but more serious and you get payed.

I'm always optimistic, life is too short to think negatively!
I'm curious about everything and I love to transmit my knowledge to student or kids or friends :)

When my work is finished, I like to see my friend for a coffee, a drink or just chill in a park. I prefer to be outside everytime as much as possible but I like to stay in my couch and watch a good movie.

My philosophy: Life is too short and after we will sleep for the eternity so wake up and enjoy everyday as the last and live your dreams! with motivation all is possible ;).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I did an erasmus year in Ireland in Cork and it was a year disconnecting from the time, ephemeral , short but emotionally intense. Meetings new people everyday, sharing life experience and culture from all around the world.

For me CS is another way to have that feelings and moreover I like the fact that host and surfer can trust each other even if you never met before. Hosting is also a way of travelling, they are too many countries in the world to visit them properly and get a good experience but by meeting people from all around the world they can give you a taste of their life in these countries !


I don't like to stay too long in my flat, the world is so big and we have not enough time so we need to move constantly to meet people and beautiful places. However when it is for cooking with my friends or guest I like to be home.

I like team sport, I play in a rugby in a club, I like also soccer or volley-ball, when you fight together you are always stronger!!

My passion is canyoning, I love being in a river, jumping, doing natural slide, discovering my environement. I'm an instructor so if I can I will bring you in you will love it, it's a passion and I want to share it with everybody.

And of course I like music, listen a good playlist when i'm driving, i'm also learning guitar as a begionner.
