About Me


I live near Toulouse.


I want to meet people, travel. I like talking about blues or actual musics, movies, politic subjects, biology, hacking and coding in general and all that is so curious. I worked in ethnopharmacology to promot phytotherapy all over the world, as bio teacher and now I am web developer


Pearls don’t lie on the seashore. If you want one, you must dive for it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Now, many experiences. The first one, alone in UK with Don. Great. In Montreal, too, with 5 friends. Awesome ! And, now, I host 20 official or not CSers in Lyon since October 2011.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In UK...with a first night, oudoor and the following nights in a huge house with its indoor swimming pool. It was a radical change and my first CS experience.
This is a bit silly but I guess that my different CSing experiences was quite amazing, each in their own ways.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to improve my english and my spanish. I like try speak with my guests in their mother tongue, except if you want to learn french.

I share easily my knowledges in several areas if you are, of course, the applicant. But I will have some difficulties to hold back to share my passion for my country, especially landscapes and Nature.
