About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding hope for the future,
Mining free time,
Experiencing.

ABOUT ME

Interested in everything, I think helping people makes me happy. I deeply feel that meeting and listening people from different backgrounds with different points of view is the most important thing to build our minds and understand ourselves.

I studied mechanical engineering, meanwhile I raced in Canoë Slalom competitions all around France and some rivers in the world :)
I love (extrem) sport, most of all when it implies nature, speed, sliding on anything, ... it could bring me anywhere and so I love traveling, discovering new places, new cultures and ways of life... :)

PHILOSOPHY

With that said, it is (unfortunately, or should we have done it before ?) time to think twice on our non-sustainable way of consuming our travels (and the entire planet, but let's stick to CS for now)

I'm kind of optimistic (deep inside), I think that makes me smile and so I can enjoy my life every days ! Good things happen, so take care of everything around you and you'll probably feel it back.

I can listen some rap and old french songs. Or just let flow with salsa, jazz...
