I was born in Germany, maintain French citizenship and raised in Los Angeles. I studied theatre (acting/directing) at the California State University, Los Angeles. I produced and directed theatre and film in Los Angeles before moving to Munich where I've lived for 18 years now. I continued producing and directing theatre and film in Munich and currently work as a freelance director, actor, speaker, writer and translator.
I like hanging out in New York City every now and then and generally enjoy traveling to various destinations and meeting new people and learning about different cultures.

As a guest: I'm very considerate to how other people choose to live and respect their wishes when in their homes. I'm tidy and neat.
As a host: I appreciate guests who leave the place like they found it and are respectful and careful with my stuff.
My style of traveling is just to go and explore.
I've hosted people from England, France, Mexico, Russia, Switzerland, Australia and Germany and they were all people I would host again.
