About Me

CURRENT MISSION

--Recover from a hard life - Be authentic and meet People - Travel - Be simple - Smile - Enjoy the beginning of a new life with the one I love -

ABOUT ME

I lived in a couple of countries because of my dad's job as a kid. I grew up in Argentina. I went to a french/Argentinian school in Buenos Aires.I had to come back to France to go to a school of engineering for 4 years.
After spending an amazing year studying in Chicago at Illinois Tech, I got my Master's in Voice and Data Communications Technologies. I accepted a job offer in Boston, stayed there for a couple year, I then moved to San Francisco, met the girl of my life, we moved to London and stayed there for 2 years. I recently quit my corporate life and came back to my parent's house, in the south of France, in search of simplicity and a new tomorrow.

I am a serious organized and funny guy. I love to party, have fun with cool people. I love to exchange and simple things of life.

I play the guitar on occasions and I might be very talkative sometimes. Travelcoholic at times, I love talking to people learn their stories! I like French movies and sports in general, I am very keen on Triathlon recently! I used to be a decent triathlete.

PHILOSOPHY
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." (Hendrix)
I think that people will probably get along better If they know each other. CS is a way to make a better world !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started CS during my road trip across southern USA many years ago. I met amazing people, always ready to help me and give me a hand with my visits! I wouldn't be able to tell you about any bad experiences doing CS..! I then forgot about it, lost in a world thast I didn't belong to. I am not ready to get back to it! 100%
