About Me

Hello !

I'm a vegan sailor / writer / musician hacktivist from the country side / oceans mountains and work as a software-test engineer in a dematerialization company. If you want to see more about my work maybe check my website http://yourlabs.org or stackoverflow profile on http://stackoverflow.com/users/136008/jpic or my github profile on https://github.com/jpic or the websites i maintain as an hacktivist like https://memopol.lqdn.fr/ Also, this is my liquor brand: http://libertalia.tv

As a dad superhero, I don't mind to clean as soon as something is dirty, have standard hygiene practice, so I can help you with that ! For live music I can participate too ;)

Thanks you CouchSurfers from the world, for all the good memories, like the weekend 14 CouchSurfers arrived at home in Alberic, barbecues, music, laughs, history, legends, science, fiction, ....

Currently creating a hackerspace in France, hopefully we'll be able to host a lot of people there B)

Rock'on good people !

Dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.
