To get my photos and writing paying for a life of traveling
I'm a writer, a photographer, give meditation classes, am now starting studies to become a yoga teacher and I'm politically involved.
I write books, comic books, used to do it for TV too, create board games, and used to take all kind of pictures... preferring when it was dangerous or of naked women. Which is not always incompatible.
You can have a look at my photos here :
I work mostly home and my desk is in my living-room. So, most of the time, you'll have to be out of the place around 9am, unless it's a day off for me or I have to be out myself or we have something scheduled together. I'm sorry for that, but experience has taught me that I don't get much done if I have couchsurfers around while I try to work.
I meditate and do yoga, which I practice 6 to 7 times a week (Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Jivamukti).
I played American Football until a few years ago and I do rollerskating on big tours in Paris with a lot of friendly people (like thousands of them) on Sundays. If ever you're into rollerskating, bring yours or rent some rollerblades here, and we'll have a 3 hours journey in the city.
If ever you're into yoga, you'll be welcome to join in some practices.
While having been a bartender for 4 years, I never drink alcohol. I don't smoke either.
While having been a DJ, I don't know a lot about music, while having been a stripper I can totally keep my clothes on when must be, and while having been a comic-book seller... well, I keep reading comic-books.
I'm pretty good at giving massages, but for the sake of peace of mind in couchsurfing, I won't be the one offering to give you one. If you'd like one though, don't hesitate to ask.
If it's a rainy day, you might have a chance to beat me at the Wii U or on board-games with some of my friends.
I'm quite easy going, so unless you're a total ass, we should get along just fine. :)
Oh, and I get along with people of 18 as much as people in their 50's, and everyone in between, in my everyday life... so don't let a simple number keep us away from each other.
What isn't shared is lost.
Make life as simple as possible, avoiding unsolvable problems, and always be respectful of others. Share as much love and care as you can.
That and having the most possible fun out of it.
Por que estou no Couchsurfing?
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Obviously I host some... offering as much comfort as I can... and I do travel a bit.
I've been one of the "Paris Emergency Group" moderators also. Weehee!!!!
Couchsurfing has made me meet interesting and nice people on every occasion, in the US, Nepal, India, Germany, Spain, Greece and here in France.
Long and deep discussions, highly valuable insights, and great laughs... no matter where in the world you are, those encounters always teach you things and are fantastic opportunities for some really good times.
Books, yoga, meditation, movies, exhibitions, Lomography, people, cultures, travels, politics, ...

Uma Coisa Incrível que Eu Fiz
I can't really tell you here, can I?
Ensine, Aprenda, Compartilhe
I don't know if I can teach, but I surely can share some knowledge I got (in photography, in storytelling, politics, yoga, meditation, and so on...)
Everything I don't know, I'm open to learn. What can you teach me?
O Que Posso Compartilhar com Anfitriões
Let's share some good times, first of all.
