About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live, Learn, See, Travel

ABOUT ME

Hi!
I love to travel. I always used to travel when I was a kid, and now, I'm just getting around to being able to do so again! In Montreal, I used to run a business with a friend (www.leseptieme.com), a repertoire videoclub. We closed it down in 2013 for obvious reasons. But I still watch a lot of movies, and try to spend as much time as I can with my friends, my family. I am know in charge of business development for a pyrotechnic company. I also am a certified technician so I work on fireworks display a couple of times a year.

I studied Political sciences at the University, I like to know what's going on in the world. I like history, geography.
Love to play music, but not enough time in a day/week/year to do all I'd want to devote myself to. One day I hope to invent the 48 hour day, so I can do it all!

PHILOSOPHY

Respect, love, share, compassion, help others. I'm not saying I live by those rules 24/7, but I try.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Just moved in a new place, still have to figure out the possibilities of hosting couchsurfers. I'm looking forward to giving back to the CS community, and meeting people from around the world while they come to visit Montreal!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I met a couple of couchsurfers staying at a friend's house in Montreal. Nice people, always!! :)
