About Me


To help people coming to France to have a good experience


4 children, grown up and independant.

I love music, I grew up with folk and traditional music, especially Celtic music. I play the guitar and I sing in different choirs.

I am a Christian and always interested in discussing other point of view. Only if you will!

For now, I am learning English, Portuguese and Breton. I'd like to travel more, but money and time are limited resources!

I work in one of the greatest company in France (in the field of energy) where I plan budgets. Not a very creative work but I like it.


I am a Christian. I believe in God, but it is a hard thing to offend me! I thing I am open-minded.

If the truth is unique, the ways to reach it are multiple. And I enjoy discovering new ones.

More and more involved in Nonviolent Communication (NVC): a new experience in communication. Opens my skills in communication, appeases my mind and gives me openess in communication situation. What a gift!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can help you to discover Paris or by driving you (public transportation) from a point to another. I have time to spend with you on the week-end or on the evening to meet other interesting people.

I apply to different communities in Paris:
- meetin.org (
- polyglot (http://www.polyglot-learn-language.com)


None at this moment.


Music: no restriction. I know better Celtic music, classical music, folk, blues, traditional.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Having 4 children is an amazing thing and was a full-time employement!

Now they are grown up, the amazing thing I did and want to do is to travel abroad, which thing I had never expected to do when I was young.

Teach, Learn, Share

For my job, I used to travel in Russia, Ukraine, Brazil, etc., and I enjoyed it a lot. Let's share about your own travelling experience!

Love to talk about French language and culture. So many interesting things to say! Some people call me "a living encyclopedia". Well, that's really overdone. I have never won when playing at "Who wants to be a millionnaire?"

Countries I’ve Visited

Brazil, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Russian Federation, United Kingdom
