Self-employed/freelance musician. 'Specializing' in 'World music'; I know this sounds like a contradiction and it is. Interested in every aspect of life. Jack of all trades. Super-curious and intellectually driven. Graduated in French Literature, but missed music too much and went back to it and got stuck! Mostly relaxed. Very open-minded. Vegetarian for 18 years and vegan for the last 14 years or so; primarily for ecological reasons. I own a three apt. building that I renovate when I have time. Would love to have more free time to travel other than when I'm touring for music. Would love to live in the country, but still love Montreal.
Some of my interests include music, 'green' architecture, hiking, philosophy, History, traveling, cooking, carpentry, musical instruments building, literature... I am fascinated by Hundertwasser and Gaudi's architecture.
Not a cinema specialist, but love watching a great flick and laughing or crying because of a good story. Been watching a ton of old French flicks with Louis-de-Funès lately. Love Terry Gilliam's films. Emir Kusturica and André Forcier blow my mind with their poetry. I like Tony Gatlif for he can combine entertainment and education. Jeunet et Caro made two of the best French films I've ever seen. Tim Burton, Coen Brothers...
Very open minded in terms of music. Some of my favorites are: Frank Zappa, Return to Forever, Prokofiev, Fela Kuti, early Phish, Chopin, Sergent Garcia, Steely Dan, Shivkumar Sharma, Grateful Dead, Rabih-Abou-Khalil, Peter Gabriel, Radiohead, Debussy, Foo Fighters, Amadou et Mariam, Gnawa Diffusion, Meshuggah, The Band, Zeppelin, Marley...
Although I studied French Literature, I mostly read non-fiction at this point. Some of my all-time favourite authors are: Montaigne, Pascal, Plato, Stefan Zweig, Mircea Eliade, Gandhi, Proust and... San Antonio!
I have little Airbnb experience at this point but have been hosting and surfing through (website hidden) for a while now and only had good experiences.
