Gracefully turning 40.
I'm alright. You know, patient, tolerant, adventurous, likes the Beatles. But hold on! I also enjoy peace and quiet and wide open spaces.
I've worked as a travel agent (in Turkey, Russia and all over Europe - still do), communications manager for Wolters Kluwer, development worker (in South-Africa), teacher, handicap nurse, accountant, DJ, translater,...
These days I'm a published comic books author, and I stubbornly write and record my own songs.
What fun is being cool if you can't were a sombrero?
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I got my first taste of surfing in the USA, did a little more since in other countries, most recently in Cameroon. I've never had the chance to host anyone yet as I'm always traveling, but look forward to it.
So far so good. In 2009-2010, I embarked on a three month long improvised bicycle trip from Miami to LA, met a handful of people thanks to CS and feel blessed for it.

I've enjoyed several hosts' hospitality since. Even though I haven't been able to host myself (the scarce times that I'm actually not traveling myself, I tend to live in remote areas where no CS'ers seem to find me), I like to think I've helped out a few people who've asked me for some travel advice.
Traveling. Music. Traveling music.
Music, Movies, and Books
British comedy, Seinfeld, mindless cop movies from the '80's (I don't know why), James Bond and all kind of epic-but-not-pretentious adventure movies.
Classic rock & power pop. My favourite band of the moment are the New Pornographers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sn-LDCRL8Js
Not much of a book reader, and yet somehow I know how to wreede and right. Actually I do read magazines and - my passion and sometime occupation - Franco-Belgian comic books.
