Mon fidèle casque est mon compagnon de route, transformant chaque trajet en concerts privés où mes podcasts préférés et mes playlists enflammées se succèdent. Du rock au jazz en passant par la soul, le rap ou encore la pop, mes goûts musicaux comme cinématographiques sont très variés. Si je ne suis pas en train de dessiner ou de lire, je suis sûrement devant les aventures intemporelles de Friends, que je recommence dès que le rideau tombe sur le dernier épisode.
