About Me


discover the world through others!!!


After many "student" years traveling and meeting new people with my family, my friends, my...self or all 3, I decided to continue doing that with my job!

It is time for new adventures, laughs, beers, friends, cultures and smiles...


"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page" Hakuna matata!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


In Spain, Italy, UK, CH, Grece, Brazil, USA, Australia, Germany, Belgium, Egypt, Canada, Maroco, Holland & Senegal, I tried to live, learn and teach to build strong relationships (so easy when you know reinforced concrete;).


Before couchsurfing, I tried one day to knock on some doors in remote French village. That really works! I then joinded Hospitality Club and surfed in NYC! That was an amazing experience. I have to tell you about this one in person... Nowadays, I am just bribing some CS friends to get them to say I am not crazy;)


I like surfing (couches and non couches). I like to play (and go to some). I like hiking, sailing, camping, traveling, eating cheese (obviously for a Frenchy) Oh and I love music (classical to rock)

Music, Movies & Books

Some good ones I really liked: Books: the Alchemist, Brave new world, the Empire of the Ants, The animals' farm.

Movies: Gattaca, L'Auberge Espagnol, Diarios de motocicleta, Usual suspects, Monthy Python: the Holy Graal, the interpreter, Inglourious Basterds.

Music: too hard to make a list.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Here is what I can think of right now: Ski with the snow as high as your waist... Going over 20 knots sailing!
