About Me


to love,live and learn every day of my life


I am a very creative, energetic, friendly, open person. I grew up in France and moved over to Cambridge when I was 11, which I guess i consider my home.

I have done a bit of travelling in the past but living in New Zealand is definitely one of the most exciting things I have ever done!

I am a painter, photographer, writer, wanderer, daydreamer,and most of all I never give up!


life is too short to do things you don't want to do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hope I can bring some of my knowledge of Wellington to any newbies as well as help with any French/English practice- and good times!


In my six months in Wellington I have met so many wonderful people from Couchsurfing who have turned out to be close friends.
