About Me

CURRENT MISSION

No special mission but live

ABOUT ME

Everything is possible !! When I was young I wanted to be a lyric singer, but my parents told me “and how can you earn money, so I studied biology and after five years in a research laboratory I bought a sailing boat and cross the Atlantic Ocean, twice and I live in south america. After a shipwrecked off Senegal, i came back in France and buy a farm in a beautiful country not far from Paris and try to live in a “normal way” for scientific museum. Sometimes I have a lot of work and sometines not so I travel and I’m happy. I get five chikens and a garden with vegetables and fruit trees. I sing with a little group and particpate to an international artist group. And.... if you want more informations, ask me..

PHILOSOPHY

Try to live close my principles : responsability, generosity, openmind. More you live, more you can understand the complexity of the world and accept all people different from ours.
