About Me


Contribute to the econo-socio-environmental Revolution


I'm polish/swiss vegan guy living in Quebec since 2008, just moved to Montreal. Kind of positive RocknRolla, strongly red & green, easy going and funny / wacky. I like to party, have fun, philosophize about things and work for a better world.

Music is very important in my life, I often go to some shows. I very appreciate people that have "good" tastes in music.

I like good beer and brew my own, I especially love IPA, stouts and red ales. I don't like commercial lagers, but it would do the job if there isn't any othe choice.


We must be the change we wish to see.

Take care of our planet and all animals living there (also humans).

Change our insane system based on economy and profit who manipulates and slaves us.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer a couch for travelers, usually hang out with them and sometimes show them Quebec City.


I've hosted a bunch of people between 2008 and 2012. Now I'm hosting less people, prefering quality to quantity.

I usually use CS when I'm travelling did this in Europe, North America and South America.
