About me

I was born in 1987 near Saint-Etienne, in the Loire region. I'm passionate about sustainable development, fair trade, social transition in general and human rights. I also have a great passion for photography, which I really started practising in 2012 during a year in Peru where I went to meet fair trade producers.

I have a Masters in Management from the Strasbourg School of Management. I also trained in foresight at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in Paris and in journalism at the Centre de Formation et de Perfectionnement des Journalistes (CFPJ - Rue du Louvre).


In my life, I have held a variety of positions, including salesman, researcher, parliamentary assistant, project coordinator, president of an association, journalist and barman at Tango, the legendary venue for LGBT life in Paris. I am regularly involved in social and societal causes as well as sustainable development. One of my battles is, of course, LGBT rights, particularly the fight against homophobia in football.

I currently live in Brussels, where I founded Conseil-Equitable, an agency working on social and sustainable transition. At the same time, I'm writing a book about the future, proposing new and optimistic narratives for our future.
