About Me

CURRENT MISSION

.... z..// ...//

ABOUT ME

First I should say that I have really little time right now in my life. I spend most of my time working as a community organizer struggling to better the welfare system here with people directly concerned by dire poverty, the welfare recipients themselves.

So when I arrive home, i don't have any energy to convince or argue with anyone about social policies like the welfare system. If you think welfare recipients - the one judged able to work especially included - are lazy folks that deserve to be suffering, please just don't write me. Don't write me neither if you think feminism is out of date, sex work is only exploitation, that mother nature is perfect and human are bad creatures, you beleive in astrology or the only thing you search here is a cheap way to travel.

You pass throught this intro ? wow
Maybe we could have some nice time together

I live in a share colocation with other feminist, anti-poverty and queer friends. We have a guest room and we are super close to joliette metro station. We are mostly vegetarian or vegan and we dumpster most of our frsh food (bread, veggies, yogourt, etc).

You are an activist yourself in your own community? Or you think social change is possible but soooooooo hard to put in place? You're mostly pessimistic about the futur of our planet but still want to do something about it? You know who is marx, but more importantly Arendt, Bourdieu and Foucault. You don't judge people around because they don't speak / look enought radical for you?

Maybe we can have even a lot of fun together !
Please do write me !

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've never been out of Montreal on couchsurfing yet but our couchsurfers made me travel while staying home :)

Interests

Some things i'm doing out of my working time...
I love my street marching band! We often have rehearsal on sunday evenings, if you play any drums, brass or woodwinds instruments, feel welcome to come with me!
I'm in a group of capoeira angola, i'm training twice a week. I also like to watch drama movies and read on social and economic policies.

Music, Movies & Books

Do you know King Kong Theory by Virginie Despentes?
I'm a fan of folk singers of here, Richard Desjardins, Bernard Adamus, Plume Latraverse.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Since more than 3 years, I'm leaving with 4 other wonderful roomates and we share meals and all the tasks in our home. Trying to build a strong and meaningfull community life with friends and visitors from different backgrounds, that's not always easy but i still not beleive it's working so well!

Teach, Learn, Share

If you want to make me a really nice surprise bring music recording or scores from your home...
