My self-summary
In a previous life, I was living in DC, studying in a MA in International relations and trying to discover why America was the greatest country in the world.
Having still not a clue, I now save money and the world by working in development aid, or more prosaicly by sitting behind a desk in this beautiful city.
What I’m doing with my life
trying to figure out what to do with it, and occasionally discovering new places, meeting new people, and getting a sense of the world before starting to work for real.

I've lived in China and in Italy before, I take pictures, play music, cook French pastry, dance salsa, denigrate technology in order to sound smarter and have a secret nostalgia of the time full of certitudes where I was studying Mathematics.
I’m really good at
certainly not selling myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most of my favourite books were written in French, like Journey to the End of the Night, The Stranger, The Red and the Black, Dangerous Liaisons or The Count of Monte-Christo.

My favorite English-speaking author is Henry James (I like the way he confronts both sides of the Atlantic); I also like Hemingway's short stories, Conrad's adventureness, Garcia Marquez' magic atmospheres, Mishima's tortured characters...

Movies: I never find the courage to watch great movies, so I end up watching stupid ones, which I cannot name here.

Music: I play the viola, so when I feel like hearing some music I play it.

Food: I guess it's what I miss most from France... I cook a lot, too much for my arteries but too little for my palate.
Six things I could never do without
Fresh croissants and a real hot chocolate
My viola
A good book
My good old Leica M6 to take pictures in style
Six-item lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
peace in the world and the sex life of crawfishes.
On a typical Friday night I am
In or out
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That would make it public I guess.
