About Me

Physicist, engineer, and entrepreneur.

Once I was used to be a management consultant, specialized in Lean. Then I founded Mutinerie with 3 friends and finally settled in an ancient farm with my wife and my two kids, after a complete renovation. This place, we named Dans la Pampa, is to be dedicated to family and children.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I worked in a big company ... ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

Living in the forest: Kind of boy scout stuffs...
Coworking, fablabs, third places: I founded a coworking space in Paris and know some about theses stuffs
Wormcomposting: I built ones and acquired some experience (still learning)
Construction: I've renovated completely a farm with biosourced materials
Business, finance, management: Trough my education and my work experience, I acquired some practical basics
Fundamental Physics: I have a good knowledge on such features: I can talk about many physical phenomenons. So if you are wondering why the sky is blue or what is the use of perspiration etc... let me know ;)

What I Can Share with Hosts

We can host travellers in basic conditions, eg camping like, in a building of our farm: so far, water and electricity, basic kitchen, no heating and no hot water. Good clothes and equipment required during winter...

We're used to welcome volunteers in our place: they give a hand in the construction of our place, and we feed them.
