Biography

After finishing my French licensed surveyor’s studies in the 90s, I worked in the mapping industry in Europe and California. In 2005, I took off on a trans-continental solo motorcycle odyssey from Alaska to Argentina. After that trip, and despite a successful one-year trial measuring the Paris’ sewers, I experienced adventure withdrawal symptoms. I seized an opportunity to participate in Afghanistan’s reconstruction which led me to engage with international development and secure tenure rights for most vulnerable peoples worldwide.
