Join Couchsurfing to see Matthew’s full profile.
To learn every language and speak to as many people as possible.
I'm back in New Orleans after about 5 years of living abroad. I live in the St Roch neighborhood of New Orleans and I love showing off my favorite city in the world.
I wrote some nice things in here and the CS website lost them. Now I am just going to write a little bit. I try to keep an open mind, be positive, and listen without judgment. I do not always succeed, so I also try to apologize when I make mistakes, no matter how small.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I truly believe in the Couchsurfing Project. 9 years and counting, and it continues to bring the most wonderful people into my life. I truly enjoyed sharing New Orleans, one of my most favorite cities in the world, with CSers from all over. I hope I can help people experience Dijon in a similar way.
Even after hosting over 80 people my experiences have all been 100% positive. I actually ended up becoming roommates with a CSer, and even though he now lives across the ocean, I still consider him one of my closest friends. Couchsurfing also brought me the love of my life!
I am very much interested in foreign languages and look forward to international visitors or visitors from the good ol' US of A that can teach me anything about another language.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you some interesting recipes and more than you ever wanted to know about language and/or linguistics.
I want to learn all about you!
What I Can Share with Hosts
If I stay with you I would love to cook you dinner and talk to you about your travels and share stories of mine as well. I love learning new things from new people, so hopefully you can share what you're passionate about with me. I promise to be respectful, tidy, as well as offering excellent conversation, and the ability to entertain myself if you are too busy.
