About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finir ce mémoire.

ABOUT ME

"Le fun, c'est plate" (Réjean Ducharme) I guess my upbringing could have made me a slightly confused, Québécois-maoist-suburban-punk rocker. I'm very glad I avoided that. Or did I ? I graduated in 2008 in Political Science-East Asian Studies, and I am now doing a Masters in Urban Planning at Université de Montréal. I am also quite proud to be the father of the loveliest pair of children on this planet. I think of making music and food as true acts of sharing and love. I enjoy working with my hands, though I wish I had more time to do that. I'm a happy person, and try to reach out to the not-so-happy.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't knock it 'till you try it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm always eager to share insights about my city and my people. I worked for Mexico tourism and traveled in Mexico and South America, and will happily share tips about those destinations.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had the chance to meet great hosts in China and Mexico, and hosted myself quite a view travelers from all around. All were extremely positive experiences. Couchsurfing is great.

Interests

Music, food, Native cultures, cycling, alternative and socio-enviro-conscious lifestyles, bandes-dessinées (mostly franco-belgian school and graphic novels), anything punk rock, kitsch, learning to play new musical instruments (lately: the banjo!).

Music, Movies & Books

Music: heartfelt, creative, provoking, exciting, from death metal to punk rock to country to bossa nova to mariachi and Québec folksongs and drum&bass and hip hop. If it sounds genuine, it usually floats my boat. Books: Ducharme, Tremblay, Italo Calvino, Jean-Simon Desrochers, Chomsky, Umberto Eco, Chuck Palahniuk, Sartre, Boris Vian, Carlos Fuentes, Juan Rulfo, Garcia Marquez, Henry Miller, Lu Xun, Lao She

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Caught the very first glimpse of my second child.
