  • founded gertrude & artlist acquired by artnet

  • meditation since I was young but not the kind that's marketed today

  • started on the internet when I was 11 from Le Mans, France - never stopped building since

I believe technology can address many problems we're facing as a civilisation and it is why I am dedicating my life to building. After selling my last company I realised that my happiness is grounded in the day to day of building rather than in the outcomes.
