About Me


TADA !!! And of course:


I'm a cool guy with a good balance between working, partying and lazy Sunday afternoons. I'm a geek - the programming kind of geek and yes I like that.
I went to the US for 5 weeks when I was 15 and actually started understanding English! Since then I've been wanting to experience foreign cultures, the way people live, study and work. I spent a semester in Nijmegen (NL) as an Erasmus student and soon I'll be moving to New York City to work for at least 12 months.
Yes! Daddy is going home ! ... 6 months later. Daddy is now home and couldn't be happier



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I moved to New York CS help me find like minded people that have turned friends. I've attended many of the weekly meetings and events organized by the awesome groups reference somewhere else in my profile - can you find them ? I've sat back and enjoyed for the first few month I feel it is now time to give back to the community so I organize events open to CSers whenever I feel people might want to join. My favorite the Burger Week: take a random list of the "Best Burgers in New York" and chain the events with as small group of devoted people.


I've couchsurfed a bit and met many surfers via CS friends back in Paris. But for my first 6 months in New York I've had but great experience with the CS community. I feel that the perfect mix between the fun and kindness of the people, the open mindedness of CS and the energy of the city brought my the most excellent of experiences.


English! I love the language I've been working on it since I was 15. So books, movies and tv-shows as long as they are in english.
Guinness - and now American beers: Gotta try them all
