I am a teacher and researcher as well as an avid reader and a constant traveler, for work or for pleasure. I lived in Paris, Rome and Fes (in Morrocco) before settling in Tokyo with my boyfriend, a former jazz promoter and now translator. I teach in University (French contemporary literature - I am French). I love midcentury modern furniture and design, foreign languages, cats, books (Victorian novels, American literature, modern poetry), good food, a sense of irony and quirky humor. Generosity and openness are on top of my list too. I am also very clean, tidy and respectful of others - this is a must in Japan, so your home will be safe with me !
