About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed some times, I even tried in the city I was living in, funny experience... I hosted once with my rommate. I surfed at Max's house in Trondheim, Norway. I met his friends and we had a nice dinner all together. It was great! I also cousurfed in Oslo and Montreal.
We've met some surfeurs in Japan travelling with my mum.
Everytime very intereting experience. I really prefer it that cold hotels.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'll just pick some movies : "The taste of Tea" de Katsuhito Ishii, a crazy japonese movie ; "The Royal Tenenbaum", and all the Wes Anderson's movies in general.
I'm fan of Michel Gondry, Fatih Akin, Pedro Almodovar, Woody Allen but also documentaries...
I'm a music addict, funk and psychedelic rock from the 60's in particular (from anywhere : Iran, Peru, USA...). I have eclectic taste : rock, folk, classic, romantic, various oldies, disco, gospel, blues, soul, expreimental...
I am illustrator curently working in a media library so I am passionate by illustration books, comics, graphic design... Some of my drawers are André François, Saul Steinberg; Quino, Tomi Ungerer... The list has no end, and never will. Everywhere I go I look for bookshops, used books with images...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Get snatches around a lake!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd like to met nice people and travel less like a tourist. I like to be surprised, to go to more underground places maybe. I particulary like music, arts in all forms, cinema, architecture, history, or just humans!
I'll be happy to learn what you want to teach me.
What can I teach? I don't know, share, talk, walk, eat...

I Know quite well Lyon where I live and Paris, if you are interested in culture, and good bookshops I might be able to help!
