-I'm a teacher and researcher at University level : applied maths, control theory, acoustics, signal processing.
-Science and especially maths are a lot more than a job !
-My main interests can be summarized in a quick formula (!) : 3M, for Mathématiques, Musique, Marche (Maths/Music/Hiking in french). This is obviously due to my job deformation but there is more than that !
-Lot of time spent at watching movies and reading but no TV at home
-When I need to escape from earth, it's because of the sea call, for sailing and letting my mind go : great emotions to share on a small area.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I do not like that much hotels rooms nor (lack of) friendlyness there. I prefer hostels that I've been practicing for quite a long time. I'm trying couchsurfing now : new experience (there is no age limit for this !)

Music, Movies, and Books
-Music : Jazz and blues, USA oldtime and bluegrass, soul/funk (S. Wonder, EWF,...) but also Highland bagpipes (!), Irish music, Bach, Debussy ! Actually no a priori against any music that can be shared ! I'm a member (trombone) of two bands : one in soul/funk, one in latin music (Afro-Cuban, Chacha, salsa...)
-Movies : old silent movies, historical movies, Hollywood comedies from the 40's, 50's, french "Nouvelle vague" (not all of it but a good lot !), Ken Loach movies that I first saw in the 70's, Mike Leigh, Almodovar, Woody Allen, Luis Bunuel (not forgetting the great A. Hitchkock!) and many present days spanish and british movies, westerns. But not blockbusters...Although John McTiernan did really good funny things. I can't put all the names !
-Well, I spend a great lot reading, apart books for my job : essays, history (Ancient Greece, Rome, Mesopotamia, etc..) : I'm trying this way to slightly understand the world how it goes... but few novels or crime novels (I prefer crime stories at movies and absurd movies are a must to me !)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Can I be amazed by myself ? Things from outside me have more chances to amaze me ! But other people can better say this !
Teach, Learn, Share
My job talks by itself ! And I still like it !
What I Can Share with Hosts
It is not so easy to tell, as sharing is involving (at least) two people so that things (in a wide sense) are shared through interaction... Feelings about music and the world how it goes now. Playing music too : the best way tho share emotions without sentences !
