About Me

Hi! I'm a French tech entrepreneur, food-lover and a huge fan of long conversations next to fireplaces at night.

I'm currently working for a startup based in Brussels called Menu Next Door, which enables people to launch their own food business from home, and other people to buy and pick up the food at their neighbours'.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to meet new people. Experience comes not only from personal adventures, but also from other people's ones. I'm looking forward to meeting other fellow travelers!


I play golf once a year, and am no good player, but enjoy the challenge. I try to travel as much as possible, practice martial arts whenever I find a club where I can stay for more than 2 months.

I'm fond of cooking too. Creating dishes, making people and people's bellies happy. :)

Finally, I looove electronic music (all night long if possible), partying, and drinking with friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love Alt-J, Arctic Monkeys, Tom Rosenthal, Fauve, Radical Face.
Electronically speaking, I love N'to, Joachim Pastor, Worakls, Deadmau5, Etienne de Crecy.
I listen to a lot of (mostly French) rap: Nekfeu, Orelsan, Guizmo, Eminem.

My favorite movie is Whiplash. If you have seen it, you'll know why. If you haven't, go and watch it now. :) I am a huge Harry Potter fan, love the LOTR trilogy, Star Wars, and all the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Books speaking, it's been a while since I haven't read something that made me dive into a good story, so I'm open to suggestions. ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I dropped school, left Paris to go to Brussels and work with an unknown guy who was building a food community. Together, we made the community grow, created tools to empower it, and raised 4M€.

To be continued... :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I give conferences about Transhumanism, Libertarianism, economics, food... I think teaching is the best way to learn something fast.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share meals :D
I love to cook, so you can give a try to my food (often Asian, but I also make awesome high-quality burgers, gastronomic dishes on occasions).

I love to talk with people about various subjects while drinking, maybe smoking, and listening to music.
