About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Rambling thru Europe in pirsuit of a love like no other, making the career shift from waiter to busker.

ABOUT ME

Oooh wow, scary.....who the hell am I!!? Boring stuff outta the way first.... I am 22 years old with an easy going nature. I speak french and english well... I love picking up instruments and figuring out how to play them, music is one of the greatest joys in my life. I would love to play for you! Sometimes I can be shy and reserved but I'm really quite an extrovert and really love poking fun at myself, anything for a laugh... I am quite passionate and often pretty wild, grateful for every second I breathe and walk and always looking for a way to celebrate and make the most of it.... I was lucky enough to have grown up in a unique and incredible corner of the globe and love sharing it with others, wherever you're from! Sorry I'm not home right now but I don't mind acting as a guide in absentia! I would love to make a living as a musician one day but until then I'm happy to travel and live through experience, to absorb as much of this world as I can and turn it into music.

PHILOSOPHY

Finding inspiration moving forward... get up and GET INVOLVED!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I'm at home I love to meet fellow travellers and show them around, seeing my own country through a stranger's eyes stops me from taking it for granted! So many times I have been in a strange place with no idea where i really was and many a kind person has taken the time just to stop and help me out. It is rare to be able to pay back this kindness so I do my best to pass it on and keep the good karma cylce in sweet motion!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Little or none?? I'm new here! Recently I arrived in Geneva and was immediately directed to the Artamis....legendary squat and creative space, and am currenly feeling the supreme privilege to have been able to experience such a unique environment before the state squashes it in a couple of weeks. Thanks to the awesome people I've met there who have lent me their couches.

Interests

receiving and distributing hi-fives! making instruments out of household objects dancing all night muusic sweet music! falling in love with total strangers sitting down on a seat and discovering that its already warm frisbees........ going to festivals, assuming a character on the first day and then developing it for the rest of the week cool glasses and funky hats

oh man theres so much around to entertain, I guess I'm pretty easily amused....

Music, Movies & Books

Jim Jarmusch The Last Waltz Chuck Pahlaniuk Charles Bukowski Babylon Circus L'Orchestr' Anonyme Rock n' roll, ska, roots, all sorts! John Lennon forever and always. Hunter S. Thompson Emir Kusturica Ben Harper (old skool)RHCP and the list goes on.........

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Dancing on stage with Xavier Rudd in Byron Bay with about 10,000 in the crowd....that was huge.....

Teach, Learn, Share

I make a pretty darn good salad dressing.... I love to cook and share recipies I speak perfect french as well as english and would love to learn spanish, and even a little dutch! I also hold a diploma in party 101 and in my spare time I fill in as a fire god.... I can show you how to build a slide quitar from a wooden box.
