About Me


Visit the american continent from Ushuaia to Alaska


I just settled down recently to start a PhD, after taking a year off to travel around the american continent



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I never really had a chance to host anybody. But I've met great people through couch-surfing, while traveling.


I started surfing in summer 2010 during my trip across USA. Only positive encounters so far.


Bikes: I commute by bike since I'm a kid, repaired bikes as a teenager and now I'm building bikes.
Traveling: give me more time and i'll travel more
Hockey: played until I was 18
Cinema: I watch tons of movies, from good Schwarzenegger movies to classical italian ones, everything but french films.
Outside world (that's probably not the way to say it): hiking, mountain biking, camping, swimming, skiing, tree climbing...

Music, Movies, and Books

Divorzio all'italiana is my favorite picture right now, but at some point in my life it was La meglio gioventu, before that The Player, before that Full Metal Jacket, before that Midnight Cowboy before that Forrest Gump (i probably forgot a lot of them)
I love very different music styles. I listen to some French and Italian folk singers, electronic, Hip Hop, classical music... and David Bowie.
One of the most intense book i read was Martin Eden by Jack London. One of the most beautiful is War and Peace by Tolstoi. My favorite author is George Simenon.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once scared a (small) bear off, more than he scared me, on a small path in Yosemite national park.
I caught a (small) caiman bare handed

Teach, Learn, Share

I know quite a bit about bikes. I even built my own bamboo bike.
I know a little bit about watchmaking, I wish to know more about it.
