About Me

🇫🇷 🇰🇭 🏉🎥 👨‍⚕️📚

I will do my best to make you having a great stay!
My job : junior doctor (I am busy)

I go to sport everyday, you can join (rugby, soccer, swimming, boxing).
When I am at home, there will 99% of the time music.
I spend a big amount of my time reading and writing.
About food I can make you try the nice spots around my place!
We also can cook your speciality meal together, as long as we find the right ingredients...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

On couchsurfing for several years. First, when I was 20, by curiosity and necessity while travelling. Then for fun, to have more friends to party with. Now, late 20's, I am looking for people to discuss with.
The atmosphere of the house full of life is amazing. Family with child(ren) are particularly welcomed.

Discovering new cultures, new ideas, new perspectives, new opinions, new type of people is my passion.
Not jaded yet but less suprised with time! I receive 10 to 15 requests a week.

If you really want to stay with me, please include a poem of your choice in your message (of course this is optional). The topic can be about anything. The author can be anybody. I can read French, English and Spanish. I can read a bit of German, Italian, Portuguese and Khmer.

After our time together, you can also post this same poem as reference, I'll be happy to read them again as a memory of you after you left the house 😊

Music, Movies, and Books

Stefan Zweig, Michel Houellbecq, Amélie Nothomb, Dostoïevski, Bernard Werber, Haruki Murakami, Alexandre Dumas, Céline...
I am happy to have your recommandations.

Songs? Your music will be mine.

Movies... Stanley Kubrick is probably my favorite director and my favorite movie is The Life of Brian.

Also, I used to make short movies (called Kino) for fun with friends.
The last one we did was for the international kino kabaret of bordeaux (in French!)
Free theme, one rule and only 72h to made it, from the beginning (imagining, writing it) to the end (editing, post prod). You can find it here :

I also did one for the NGO I used to work for called UAEM. This short movie aimed to promote Access To Medicines in developing countries :

Also, I have produced a 52' documentary about the "Pots and pan revolution" in Iceland and the constitutionnal process that occurred afterwards :
