About Me

Namaste, wonderful humans! 😊🙏❤️

I've finally returned to France with a heart full of stories and a mission to sprinkle a bit of that legendary traveler's hospitality I've received during my many years of globetrotting.

Ever since I embraced meditation (two hours daily, yet still no levitation skills), gave up alcohol, drugs, and bid adieu to social media, my journey on this magnificent planet has been amazing. Nothing is eternal but I really try to keep those positive habits in my daily life and during my wanderings.

So, if you're into heart-to-hearts, sharing laughs, and maybe a bit of soul-searching we could make this journey memorable together :)

Even tough I don't play any instrument one of the things I love the most is listen live music and randomly shake my body in an attempt to dance

My vison of architecture is evolving and enriching along side with my studies. What I can say is that bringing sustainability and peace in the built environment is one of my main concerns. I'd like to dediacte my work for social and ecological justice. I'm not really interested in making architecture for pure aesthetic but rather try to enrich communities and host life in harmony with it's environment. I belive that architecture can really positively impact population and empower the most vulnerable ones. Natural, local and bio-sourced materials like earth, wood, bamboo, straw, stones are my favorite ingredients.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ayawaska and Vipassana meditation retreats are the deepest and most life changing things I have experienced.

I've recently sat for 30 days in silence in the UK and wish to join more courses like that
