About Me

I am a young photographer and a reporter and I spend the most of my time around the world to understand better the history, cultures, religions and communities.
The rest of time I spend it in my association, a social and cultural one.
I love wilderness and this connexion that we all have with Mother Nature. If you suggest me following you in the nature with a sleeping bag, I don’t hesitate even one second.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I always had a magnificent experience with this application.
I like the philosophy of sharing, which is very wide-spread in countries of the Southern Hemisphere but not enough in Europe I find.
That’s why I love meet people who think similar.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walking from the highest peak in Ethiopia to one of the lowest, or just not succumbing to temptation of eating chocolate in my home country which is Switzerland.

Teach, Learn, Share

I adore the art in a general way, it’s my passion. I love making photgraphy, video, painting and drawing. And it’s always an enormous pleasure to share it with people and the world.
