About Me


To serve Life, to serve the collective and the commun good


After a few years staying home in Quebec city, now I go back on the road to meet new people! In Quebec, I was working on a project of local currency, taking part in the transition movement (transitionnetwork.org) and also working in international cooperation.

I'm really interested in any local initiative that has the goal of transition, giving more power, autonomy or resilience to comunities or group of people. I would love to hear about these projects, see them, get inspired by them. But what I'm even more interested in is how the people came together to make the project, and how did it change themself, making an inner transition.

I also love permaculture, and I'd like to know more about it by experiencing it.

More generaly, I'm always positive, very rarely in a bad mood and I love to try everything to discover it, and to have an opinion about it.
