About Me


Just be yourself


Hi, i am a 43 years old man, single, living in a wonderful old house with a big garden. This house is a part of me, and i want it to live. I want to share it... and it's the best way to open my mind and my world to ther peoples, other cultures, other universes...


in french the word is "nuance", which means that according to me, people and situations can't be reduced in a simple "black or white" "good or bad" classification. I don't like dogmas, fanatism and over reacting people.
I'm peaceful, quiet and if my humour is sometimes sarcastic, it's never mean. Apart if you deserve it ! ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


my best friend is a member of this site.


i'm a beginner with this site, but i already have a long experience in welcoming people i never met in my house. people from romania, russia, bulgaria, sweden, england, united states, germany and england who became real friends


It's sad to reduce interests in a few words. When life is the interest. When new people, new emotions are great... When Schubert, Bach and Mozart can make you thrill, when a wonderful book can change your day, and when a good glass of wine can be the last evidence of the existence of a God, somewhere... (in my glass?) ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

I work in TV and cinema, and i am a "writer", i like easy things, easy to read, easy to feel, easy to share, everything which doesn't come from the "intellectual arrogance". i like to feel the smile on my face or any emotion coming from the heart or the guts. I think the best writers, authors, or movie directors are those who give you the feeling that everything is simple, while it was so hard and required so many efforts to complete it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Talking to my beloved ones who died too soon

Teach, Learn, Share

french cook? humour? Wine? Theatre... so many things and so few... the "alchemy" or connection with two people will give the direction... So, what will be learnt, taught, or shared will depend on You, the same as it will depend on me...

Countries I’ve Visited
