About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Write ?

ABOUT ME

I'm on a constant roadtrip in Europe (or elsewhere) where i interview people on the way ... about any kind of topic, mostly prejudice or life issues. It's very "nourishing" and also a great deal of work ;) I finance this project by teaching french online (conversation level), so i can be anywhere anytime too. I'm very creative, always thinking about new ideas for a book or a movie or a collage or a mix of all medias...
I'd also like to write "carnets de voyage" with pictures and texts about different places in the world, Europe, yes, but also maybe from/in other places like Southamerica or Asia or anywhere else where CS will bring me to !! I would love to include the CS members who would let me stay at their place and show me their lives and countries. Also i'd like to do this for big cities, especially NY where i have never been until now... i'd love to discover that place but not as a tourist, not from a hotel, more in a context of creating art or meeting "locals". I love to be in big cities (lived in Paris for years) but also the mix of having other atmospheres around me, that's why i love to travel too. A month at the sea, 3 weeks in Madrid, 2 months in France, in Austria or Italy... discover new areas i have never been... spend 3 days in the mountain but then again be somewhere where i can see the horizon... Very curious about differences in this world. I think every person on this planet is a unique and definitely fascinating wonder !!! There is always only one YOU at a time, everyone is really UNIQUE ! I find life (with its positive and negative sides) absolutely fascinating. The complexity of the human being can be scary but also very inspiring. I appreciate people who make an effort to reach happiness and are generous with that attitude. I love being around generous, emotionally intelligent creative people. I love differences. I love it when we can all be different together in a positive interactivity.

PHILOSOPHY

"whatever your philosophy is, respect the one of the others"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'll be traveling a lot in the next few months but I could offer my couch to people after that. I'm already telling many people about it because I am so glad that such a community exists.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've always been surfing couches as in my life I've experienced hundreds of couchtravels or holidays by friends, family or even friends of friends of friends... because of my writing and the fact that I live between several countries. I'm very happy that CS exists now because it makes it even easier and incredibly exciting !!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Be alive

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm used to share my experiences with others when they are wanting to know about them. I also teach languages and organise writing workshops to help others discover their inner writer... I've been writing biographies for different persons who wanted to share their lives with readers... so I'm a lot into sharing or helping to improve, share, understand... but I also want to learn myself, at the moment I'd like to improve my oral expression in italian and russian. I'd need to meet people filming documentaries too because that's where I need to improve (technical side)... so if you can help me, that'd be very nice.

Cooking (french). Conversation. How to learn a language. How to be creative and free about it. Share experiences about traveling.
