About Me

I live north of Strasbourg. 5 min by bus 10 min by bike.

I have a daughter Rita who is 18 years old and a son Nemo who is 9 years old.
I live with my girlfriend Lara who is teaching north american literature at the university of Strasbourg.

I am an actor, theater actor. I have been directing for twenty years an improvisation theater company here in Strasbourg : inedit théâtre. (
We played lots of shows, we organised our own festival too (crazy things like a non-stop show of one week and we participate to international festival in Berlin, Lyon, St Petersburg, Montreal...

I also worked a lot on society issues by creating something we called "citizen shows". In those shows we tried to bring to the audience different points of views in order to have a debat at the end of the show. The shows talked about : money, work, medias, water, progress, globalisation, democraty, food...

Laugh is my main weapon.

I also have some writing projects. I wrote a play about my family story. My four grand parents have four different nationalities (French, Austrian, Russian and Finnish). I play it here and there.

I love to create and imagine crazy projects.

I'm a non smoker.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was once hosted in Barcelona. It was a great experience.
I hosted several couch surfers.


I practice a lot of theater, and I am a go player. I like all kind of games.
When I have some time I paraglide also, but my work is too busy lately.
I like cinema too and enjoy to read nice books so I can also imagine my own pictures.
I love very much to meet new people, and share nice discussions around a beer or a fine tea.
