About Me


working as free lancer and working for my association


hum...to make short.
I have been working as engineer until 2010, then I create in 2011 with friends and family an NGO to help a school in Gossas (Senegal).
Now still working part-time as engineer, working as volunteer for our NGO, and studying classical singing in Trossingen (Germany)


I had a normal life. A good job, a nice flat, a car, friends...And then I notice, that I don't want this life, I just want to realise my dreams, and I only have one life for it...so I left for travelling. first to Canada, USA, and then Senegal.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Surf in Canada in the US and Belgium. Always good experiences.


Sports : volleyball, beach volleyball, hiking, mountain biking, motorbike.

Music : I start to play the violin again after 10 years break. learning the cello and the piano. But my main instrument is my voice. I'm now studying classical singing specialised in "Old Music"
