My self-summary
Born in Paris, raised in the French Caribbean Islands until I went abroad right after my A-level; since then, using studies as an excuse to travel around, from the US to to China and London.

Back in Paris since April 12 for a first job, I successively moved to Luxembourg, Francfort and now back ton London again! (I guess I insert a timeline somehow)
What I’m doing with my life
I'll show you my Linkedin once we are intimate enough ;)
I’m really good at
Mental arithmetic (I should have become a waiter), cooking Breton crepes (as it both a meal and a dessert, you will never be starving with me) and History quiz. Try me!
The first things people usually notice about me
"You have really long eyebrows"
"How can a French get this American accent?"
"Is there somewhere you haven't been?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some clues here, I forget half of what I like/listen (then I have the pleasure to rediscover it again haha!)

Music : Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay, Muse, Queen, Fall Out Boy, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, J. Blunt, Justice, Madonna, Mika, Robbie Williams, Louis Armstrong, Alternative rock such as Daft Punk, Cocoon, Moby, Massive Attack, Trinah, and jazz with Ray Charles, Katie Melua, Ayọ.
Nowadays, I am really in an electro-jazz mood, if you like that we will definitely get along!

*This one needs an update*
I forgot TV shows (Californication, HIMYM, TBBT, obvisouly Game of Thones but also Archer, House of Cards, Battlestar Galactica...) and many other things ^^
The six things I could never do without
Wifi (it will probably be part of the Maslow pyramid one day)
Smartphone (my iphone is long gone now, didn't last through my 6-months in Beijing - I am sure there is a gang stealing iphones from expats in nightclub)
Sport (any kind, but at least twice a week)
A good breakfast (almost my main meal of the day!)
A trip to the sea once in a year (islander talking)

Did I mention a good book, my impressive (but not even half listened) playlist, TV shows or movie? Oh yeah I already have my smartphone for that ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is it too early to have a glass of wine? (No I am not an alchoolic :p)

Do I have enough time to go to the gym today? (permanent struggle with a demanding job haha)

In which year was this song famous?

Have I had my 5 a Day?
On a typical Friday night I am
Outside. Even though I won't do any crime I won't say no to a partner :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The first (and only!) album I bought was Britney Spears' debut album. Yes, I feel ashamed.
Ok ok, I bought La Macarena single too...

"Laissons les jolies femmes aux hommes sans imagination"
(please let's not read Proust with a sexist angle)

Time to share a final video?
