About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore the range of possibles. At least, all my possibles…

ABOUT ME

I'm kind of a happy volcano with a hat on it.

I'm rather passionate, easy going, offering a warm contact and I like to talk about a lot of things.

I'm a freelance, non-conventional, software architect used to be fairly creative, although at the moment I'm stupidly boiling up repairing boring programs against a bit of temporary security.

However, the more I investigate human relationships, the less I trust computers ;-) I've been kindof a nerd in the past, I must admit. Not that I was autist or so, only hyper focused on my job, so I probably missed out a bunch of good pieces of the life cake. Not all, of course! And I've a wonderful 19 years old son. Anyway, I've no regrets at all. Computers could have been a good thing for humanity. The problem is that humans are writing the programs ;-)

It does not help… Thinking versus feeling… both are needed altogether, I think I've both, and I like to be like that.

Now I've more time to focus on all the rest I've wiped out under the carpet during 15 years, reactivating my child part, getting my foundations back while sharing them with all of you. I'm fed by diversity and like to adapt to a wide range of persons, as long they are kind enaugh.

PHILOSOPHY

I like to transmit knowledge.
I've no interest in things or ideas if I can't share them.
I try to make my best while keeping the pleasure of doing it.
At the moment my mind is growing up about degrowth.
And I'm interested in emergence theories.

Interests

Things I like to do are photography (if I've time), writing poetry (kindof), playing music (kindof as well), cycling, diving, skiing and hiking. I'm very social and appreciate to speak and laugh about a lot of things. I may be a pretty good cook if I give myself the time to operate. I like to speak about humans, love, music, litterature, politic, and computers… but not too often ;-)

Music, Movies, and Books

So many… Could have been addicted to culture if I had time. I appreciate all kinds of non-commercial music. All kinds, it depends the moment, but not all artists. But among others, if I give myself some time to dive in, I like free jazz (John Zorn, Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, …) and contemporary classical music (Steve Reich, Morton Feldman, Pierre Boulez, …).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was young I saw an UFO. The day after the newspaper spoke about it but their delirious description was not matching mine at all.

Countries I’ve Visited

Countries I’ve Lived In
