About Me


meet you


I'm a young cinvil engineer, and i currently study Architecture in Lyon. I like sciences, but also art, and architecture. I practise photography, painting, some projects of archi also. I like live music, although I play no instrument. I often go to concerts, and to cafes where i can ear some.


Everything is a story of balance, if you find yours, you'll be happy.
I think i'm a kind of Epicurean also during the holidays ;-)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I want to meet new people. I've experienced CS for several years now and from my point of view, surfing is the best way to meet a country, and hosting is the best way to stay travelling all year long as foreigners bring some hollydays feeling with them.


I stayed at jens shleisher's in BerlinI stayed at DOPY's in AngersI stayed at Boris Quennehen's in ClermontI stayed at Alexandre Villeneuve's in AngersI stayed at Marlies' in AmsterdamI stayed at Frank's in AmsterdamI hosted John MaidmanI hosted LucyI hosted YannAnd all that was awsome!

And then i stoped counting...

I loved all my CS experiences and i am definitly not done with this website!


I practise some forms of art, and I love to discover others. I 've been practicing photography for several years, digital and non-digital. I paint a little, I tried graffiti recently, and I like that! I often go to concerts, or to cafes, I like very much theatre,I like very much going to shows. I practice rollerskating, a little of football (as everybody I gess) and some mountain bike when I am in the countryside.
