About Me

ABOUT ME

I was born in Lyon (France) but grew up in Marocco and La Réunion for 12 years. Then returned back to Lyon for 13 years. After my studies i went to Montréal, Canada, in 2004. I worked in finance and became canadian citizen in 2011. So i'm both french and canadian. In june 2012 I went in New Caledonia and stayed one year and a half. I'm back in Lyon since january 2014. I'm working for an insurance firm.

Je suis né en France, à Lyon. J'ai grandi au Maroc, à Casablanca, puis à La Réunion (Saint-Benoît). J'ai passé huit ans au Canada, à Montréal. Depuis fin 2011 j'ai la citoyenneté canadienne, me voilà donc franco-canadien. Là-bas j'ai travaillé dans la finance. Au mois de juin 2012 je suis arrivé en Calédonie. J'ai été embauché par une boîte de consulting. Me voilà de retour à Lyon depuis janvier 2014. Désormais je travaille pour une compagnie d'assurance.

J'aime mon travail mais mes vrais centres d'intérêts sont la lecture, l'écriture et les voyages.

PHILOSOPHY

'All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.' Edgar Allan Poe

'It's better to burn out than to fade away.' Neil Young

'The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.' Jack Kerouac
