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 start rebuilding an ancient farm in the countryside with my wife (and kids). This place, we named Dans la Pampa, is to be dedicated to family and children.

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.
