About me
I’m a French expat from Nantes, in the west of France. My family roots are partly in Brittany and partly in the Caribbean (Guadeloupe), which gave me a curiosity for mixed cultures, learning languages, and experiencing different lifestyles. I moved to Brussels in 2009 and have been living here without a car ever since. I love exploring the city on foot, going off the beaten track to find charming, underrated spots. I’m passionate about music and people, so you can count on me to scout the best places in town for live music! Professionally I combine these things by working in human resources by day and as a singer-songwriter by night.

Why Brussels?
I feel totally at home in Brussels, though it wasn’t love at first sight. I remember being new, isolated, and easy prey for tourist traps. I wish I had known Spotted by Locals when I arrived! Today Brussels is my favorite place to live because it’s both a village and a capital: it is small enough to be tamed but very active culturally, full of green areas, and brimming with bars and restaurants. A fantastic mix for a hyperactive person such as myself :)

Where can you find me online?
