About Me

An it harm none, do what ye will.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am here for travellers who need a warm cup of tea, a hug, or place to sleep & advice for my city. I am NOT here to offer a free hotel room (service included). I like interaction, exchanging ideas & creating a better society, inside or outside Couchsurfing.


Got inspired by computers & electronics, circuits that transmit information. I got amazed by IRC and ICQ, chat rooms in blinking black and white pixels, sensitive human beings who were hiding behind bits and bites.

Grew up creatively, I make photos (of anything that inspires me and that's often humans and textures), later fell in love with moving image, creating films & documentaries. It seems music is also my passion, from classic guitar to modern electronic sounds or any blend between them.

Trained as a Michelin chef, food is also something that I love and it's expressions especially by contemporary chefs (I am more interested though in looking in old books).

Above all I dance. Swing, Lindy Hop, however you can call it, i LOOOOVE dancing.
