About Me

My latest passion is playing the piano. I have one in my apartment, so if you like music, we could jam together ! I also love kayaking and telemark/nordic backcountry skiing.

If you would like to share a meal, maybe go out, I can show you my city. I love getting out of town to get to nature; I have a car. I'm friendly and curious. I like meeting new people and exploring new places, good conversation, nightlife.

Things I used to do: travel regularly to Bangladesh, WWOOFING, which is related to organic farming and permaculture, primitive and ancestral skills, yoga. I like travelling but I don't like emitting carbon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am starting to host more regularly, I have also used this system a lot as a surfer.

A great guy from Montebello hosted me on a bike trip, which was my first experience. Since then I used it a lot to get to meet people in Morocco and Bangladesh, and also to get out to the mountains north of the city. I met people all over India, and New York City and Vancouver. More recently I couchsurfed in Maine, USA.


I am obsessed with kayaking these days. I own 3 kayaks.
