About Me


sharing my knowledge of french, swiss and other cultures, play the ukulele and the charango!


I'm an easy going person, I like to spend hours talking about live, science and whatever interesting. I'm also quite active, doing sports and training kids to play the rugby. I'm listening to a lot of music during the day so I always want to get new stuff, and I like to have fun with my ukulele. Here is one example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elEMUtnnLZE (I'm the ukulele not the blond girl :-))
I'm researcher in cognitive neurosciences interested in meditation, hypnosis and other fancy stuff (http://www.theassc.org/past_recipients).
Last but not least, I'm a 7 rugby player and coach for kids under 16.


je suis ni pour, ni contre, bien au contraire!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A friend told me about and I find the idea amazing!


I spent a week in Rio couchsurfing in 3 different places! Awesome!! I met nice people, interesting and friendly, CS is a life experience!! I've also been to Vienna
Then I hosted (americans, chineses, french)
I'm currently moving to Buenos Aires so don't have house at the moment...


I'm interested in many domains like everyone on CS (music, sports, cinema...) but more specifically I like to have social interactions with different cultures.

  • concerts
  • coach
  • meditation
  • movies
  • music
  • sports
  • rugby
  • science
  • statistics
