About Me


Trying to put a smile on the face of every people I meet.


Head in the clouds, but feets on the floor...

I'm quite talkative, and think that i'm an accessible person, and as it's complicated to describe oneself, don't hesitate to contact me to get to know me...
Some said me that sometimes, I afraid people the first time, because I'm not shy but direct and frank, and like to tease and joke with people. No observating round, I don't like to judge anyone, I just take people as they are and try to be myself!

I think I'm an ambivalent person, with lots of differents faces, and most of the time, like a chameleon I adapt myself to situations, being at ease with all kind of people or places.


Carpe Diem, dont have any regrets, always look the bright side of life and BANZAI!

Make sure not to philosophize too much. Paradoxal for someone so cogitative.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By spreading the word, hosting people, creating little events/meetings, etc...


I love basketball (playing for 15 years and coaching teams for 11 now) and extreme sports like canyoning, rafting,...(would love to try ski jumping). I enjoy cooking with friends, hiking in nature, travelling, meeting new people, cultures, looking for alternative ways of life.
I like to play with kids, animals, and to have great time and fun with people. Some peanuts, a beer, a friend, what else should I need to be happy?
I'm interested in ecology, geography, history, politics, sociology/psychology, and trying to find out the best solutions to preserve mother earth and use less natural ressources. In fact, i'm interested into people and the world that surrounds us.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I just try to do crazy things every day. Or even better: make every day crazy.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can train you at basketball or even fix your computer problems. But better than these material things, I love to share experiences and stories with other people.
I think we learn a lot from people if we hang some ears on our heart to be able to listen them beyond the simple words.
I'm looking for learning anything somebody can teach me, about almost all subjects, local specialities, etc...
I'm always happy to share a lot of things : food, drinks, ideas, good moments, music, fun and smiles!
