About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Play Ingress.

ABOUT ME

Note: Stéphane is the french for Steve(n) As of August 25 2011, couchsurfing.org is no longer a non-profit organisation. http://www.couchsurfing.org/bcorp or http://bit.ly/p5rWUq it changes a lot of things for me, I'll keep you informed. My first step is to abandon my groups.

Hi,

The first thing you'll probably notice is my long hair. At my 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!

PHILOSOPHY

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 :(

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I offer a nice view of the Eiffel tower ! I can also help you with the french language. Explain anything about computers.

⁂ 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!
