About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Communicate !

ABOUT ME

I am a very curious person - open-minded and always ready to meet new people and see new places. I am a french native but I live in South Africa with my Fiance who is originally from Cape Town. I do travel quite a bit for my work, in other african countries. And its fascinating. Even if I am a pretty relaxed person, respecting rules and limits, being polite etc are for me very important. So I also choose the people I hang out with according to this criteria ! It's just a matter of respecting each other, after all.

PHILOSOPHY

No specific philosophy. Except being myself, honest with myself and others. Best way to feel good.
