Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm a french guy, recently moved to Paris from DC.
I was born in French Guiana but, as a military brat, I lived in
many places in France and abroad. I studied computer science in
France and Scotland.
I am definitely adventurous and I usually do everything I decide to
do with passion. I also tend to be perfectionist, to the excess
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am now starting a new job in Paris after working for two years at
the French Embassy in the US. It made me discover the world of
diplomacy and I would love to continue working in an international
context, maybe the UN ?
I also recently started doing martial arts again by practicing
. I did
a lot of Judo and some close combat and Karate but stopped a few
years ago because I had to study and couldn't practice
I usually try to have unusual vacations, the latest one being a
tour of the US by train (DC - Buffalo - Chicago - Seattle - San
Francisco). Yes, that is a lot of train.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adapting ! I moved a lot and I am really good at feeling at home
wherever I live.
I am also very good at trying new things, getting out of my comfort
zone, discovering new aspects of the city I'm living in.
Latest discoveries ? The Folger theatre for an amazing performance
of Twelfth Night and the SurviveDC race !
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I really love science-fiction especially the Hyperion Cantos, the
Vorkosigan Saga, the Ender's Game series and a lot more ...
I also have a strong interest in fantasy : mostly Eddings (The
Elenium is definitely one of the best), Tolkien (The Silmarillion
is a must read), Hobb (The Farseer Trilogy !).
Other books I loved : the Hornblower series (I love the mix between
History and adventure, also liked the anti-hero style of
I read a lot of late 19th/beginning of 20th century novels too :
Sherlock Holmes (love the books, not a big fan of the newest
movies), Arsène Lupin (definitely one of my inspiration) or Edgar
Rice Burroughs (for his invention of Pellucidar). I must also admit
that I am a big fan of Lovecraft novels.
My favorite show is definitely The Wire (for its cynical,
down-to-earth side). I also really like scifi shows like Battlestar
Galactica and Babylon 5.
You should note that I developed a very particular hate/love
relation to VEEP since I lived in DC (some aspects are so close
from my personal experience ...). Same goes for House of Cards and
its beautiful DC scenes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next travel (I'm thinking about Chile/Argentina), my previous
travels (I went to Dominica in March, I miss the rainforest :-).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Wouldn't be a good idea to put it on a public website, no ?
