Son of a laborer father and an independent mother, I was born in Nivelles in January 1969 to join a humanity witch is already doubled to staffing since my birthday. Originally from Frasnes-lez-Gosselies, the live gave me the opportunity to live in different places in Belgium and the rest of the world.

Originally trained as a technician in forestry, I then approached by my studies or following various professional experience, areas of tropical agriculture, mapping, animation and aeronautics. I had thereafter an artistic career in the fields of music, circus and theater just before returning to university studies at 38 years old.

These studies began with BA in Sociology anthropology, whose first two years were made at the Université libre de Bruxelles and the third at the University of Coimbra. I then continued my education with a master's degree in anthropology from two years performed at the Université catholique de Louvain.

After my college graduation, I deepened my knowledge of video editing and politics field. I was active in the Pirate Party of Belgium for almost three years before realizing that our political systems, based on elections and inter-party competition, was at the root of the current governance crises. Following this experience, I developed a reflection through a personal independent studies namedTrilogie pour un monde juste et sain then get involved more actively in community projects and father's life.

More recently, in June 2016, I've finished a University Certificate in Economic and Social Ethics witch give me the opportunity to precise personal convictions in theoretical field. One yeat later, I joined the Laboratory of Prospective Anthropology for a self financed doctoral study in sociological and political science. My reseach still in progess concern the understanding of the globalized society and the digital revolution through the Wikimedia movement.

Within the mouvement wikimedia, I am particularly interested in anthropological, ethical and political issues. Mostly active on Wikiversity where I publish all my work, while intervening in the management of the site as administrator from 2015. My contributions to the foundation's other projects are more modest and are made as I read. At the beginning of 2013 and following my participation in Wikimania 2014, I started to take an increasing participation and interest in off line Wikimedia activities and finally became founding member of the association Wikimedia Belgium and board member since 2017.
