About Me


I started a small personal business as a photographer right after graduation. Now I have to make it thrive and figure out my adult life, or something


So...I'm 25, I graduated in September 2015 in Foreign Languages in Paris. I really love languages, I speak a decent English and French too, I'm taking evening classes of German.

A 6 months stay in China gave me a lot of lust for travelling and seeing the world, I'd like to do some backpacking or bicycle travelling in the next years.

I'm trying to earn a living as a photographer, but I'm also looking for other jobs in the meanwhile. I'd like to have a place of my own in which to confortably host fellow couchsurfers, at the moment that's not the case.

I love reading, I'm generally curious about the world, people in it and everything.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Ehm...I promise I'll be offering hospitality to people who want to visit my city, when I'll be able to!


Just one, as you see in the references, I hosted two Polish girls at my place in Paris while I was studying there, they were really nice persons and as a first experience it was very cool. Also, I was given a bed by a stranger on one occasion in China, it was really convenient for me and he was very generous to have me, so I was so grateful. Everything went fine!
