About Me


Learn Sambà and Portuguese


I am a simple bohemian who’s trying to live as simple as I can. Authenticity and integrity are real important values that I do cherish in my life and in people I meet.

I work as a freelance web marketer. I also develop web apps using php/ mysql, but I really do prefer developing web strategies and concepts, rather than typing lines and lines of codes! You can have a peak at my folio www.nomadinteractif.com it’s in French, but text doesn’t matter! My idealistic vision of nomadinteractif.com is to work on project abroad… kind of exporting myself ;)!

Other than work, sports get and important place in my life! Hockey all year around, cross country skiing and in summer time I kitesurf when possible!

Music is my obsession, everywhere at anytime! I started a cure lately to find more moments of silence with myself! I think it’s necessary to keep your mind focus! I have discover a new passion in cooking, take the time to prepare food while drinking wine and chat is so relaxing and it please me a lot!

And finally, I live for new experiences and meeting interesting peoples. These are invaluable assets that bring happiness in my life!


A vaincre sans péril, on trimphe sans gloire ! Google tranlate it that way : To conquer without risk is trimphe inglorious !
