About Me

I love to practice languages and I speak 🇵🇹🇪🇸🇯🇵🇩🇪🇫🇷🇮🇹

💉 Fully Vaccinated
🇬🇧 I'm an open minded and friendly guy. I lived for two years in Tokyo, 3 years in Madrid, 2 years in Zurich 🇨🇭 and one year in Porto. I have just spent 1.5 month in Rome to learn Italian and I am on my way to Hamburg to improve my German. I am looking for my next place to work and live but in the mean time I am travelling and improving my languages.
I am an actuary and engineer and have been working in insurance and financial service for 10 years. I am very interested in geopolitics and international relations so I am willing to move in my career toward this field.


🇩🇪Hallo zusammen,
Ich bin ein 34-jähriger französischer 🇫🇷 Ingenieur und Aktuar (Versicherungsmathematiker). Ich werde am ersten August für einen Monat (oder länger) in Hamburg ankommen. Ich lerne Deutsch 🇩🇪 und interessiere mich für die Arbeit in Wirtschaftsdiplomatie, Geopolitik und internationalen Organisationen. Ich habe 10 Jahre in der Finanzbranche in Paris, Tokio 🗼, Madrid, Porto und Zürich 🇨🇭 gearbeitet.
Es wäre toll, neue Leute kennenzulernen und berufliche Kontakte zu knüpfen, also lasst es mich bitte wissen, wenn ihr euch auf einen Kaffee ☕, Mittagessen 🍝, Sprachaustausch (tandem), Museumsbesuch , Sport machen möchtet...
Ich spreche auch Spanisch 🇪🇸, Portugiesisch 🇵🇹, Italienisch 🇮🇹 und Japanisch 🇯🇵.
Bitte zögern Sie nicht, mich zu kontaktieren.

🇯🇵 僕はRomain ( ロマン)です。フランスの出身です。今チューリッヒに住んでいます。パリに卒業の後で仕事のために東京🗼に引っ越しました。日本に2年間に住んでいまして本当に楽しかったです。投資銀行で金融エンジニアとして働いていました. 地政学に興味があります. 今年の夏休みでドイツに過ごすつもりです。日本語のスキルを磨き、いつか日本🗾に戻ってきたいので、日本人の友達ができたら嬉しいです!

🇮🇹Ciao a tutti,
Sono un francese di 34 anni, mi trasferisco a Amburgo a agosto. Il mio piano è imparare il tedesco e cercare un lavoro. Sarebbe bello incontrare nuove persone quindi per favore fatemi sapere se volete incontrarci per un caffè, pranzo🍕, scambio linguistico, andare a visitare un museo🎨, fare sport🚲 ...Sono un ingegnere e attuario e ho lavorato nel settore finanziario a Parigi, Tokyo, Madrid, Porto e Zurigo. Sono anche molto interessato a lavorare in diplomazia economica, geopolitica, organizzazioni internazionali.

🇵🇹 Eu também falo português então podemos conversar. Morei um ano no Porto e viajei várias semanas no Brasil🇧🇷. Comecei a aprender o portugês quando morava em Tokyo, no Japão. Tinha muitos amigos brasileiros de origem japonês.

🇪🇸 Hola chic@s! También podemos hablar en español. Viví 3 años en Madrid y viajé a México🇲🇽 y Colombia🇨🇴.
La familia de mi madre es de origen de Garrucha en Almería entonces tengo sangre andaluz!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My experiences with couchsurfing:
I had a really great stay in Rome at Roberto's and Alejandro's and in Nagazaki at Sam's.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I climbed Fuji mountain, I thought I would never reach the top (I don't hike much) and then on the top we had to wait freezing two hours before the sun rise in the cold, but when the sun started to rise above the clouds it was on of the most beautiful thing I ever saw.
Got the Padi Openwater licence.
