About Me


Play Ingress.


Note: Stéphane is the french for Steve(n)
As of August 25 2011, is no longer a non-profit organisation.
See it changes a lot of things for me, I'll keep you informed. My first step is to abandon my groups.


Before 2013 I was living alone at my place. This is not longer the case since I now live with Lorely, a couchsurfer I met in 2012. Since then we spent some time in Latin America, so we are hosting a lot of friends from there, we don't really need this site to host anymore, we have visitors from now and then.

The first thing you'll probably notice is my long hair. At our place I have many old/vintage computers (circa 1970's) and parts, so if you're allergic to old computer parts, don't come! I also have a few stick insects, I say that just in case the computer thing wasn't enough to scare you.
I don't work right now, so I have plenty of time. I like staying up late at night talking, or maybe watching movies, reading, going out to a restaurant/bar or jazz club.
Welcome to Paris!


I'm gr33k, that's like a Greek geek you know? I believe a lot of problems can be solved by talking. I am calm, open minded and I respect people.
I eat all kind of food, if it's not too spicy, but cannot cook :(

Lorely is from Latin America. She's a psychologist and anthropologist.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We offer a nice view of the Eiffel tower !
We both speak french, I speak English and Greek, Lorely speaks Spanish.
We are open people so we can speak about a lot of topics, from technology to sociology.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Imagine an IT guy in a duck farm in Austin... It was awesome!
I use only (analog) backward wrist watches & clocks.

Teach, Learn, Share

⁂ How to fold socks the right way.

⁂ I like science (see previous point), arts, jazz, my town (Paris), and I'm very curious about everything.
I usually ask questions until I understand something correctly. There are so many things I don't know!

I'll be happy to hear about you, who you are, and where you have been.
