Wishing you great discoveries in the universe Wikimedia,
P.-S. I'm French native speaker, and apologize for misspelling also due to dysorthographic trouble. Please don't judge me on basis of this, however, do not hesitate to correct my writings. The wiki environment lends itself perfectly and I will be very grateful for it.
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 the Belgian political context does not allow me to develop respect for my ideals and a certain ethic of democracy. Following this experience, I developed a reflection throught a personal independent studies named Trilogie pour un monde juste et sain then get involved more actively in community projects and father's life. More recently, in June 2016, my personal thoughts I've finished a University Certificate in Economic and Social Ethics witch give me the opportunity to precise personal convictions in theoretical field. Finally, since July 2017, after a short period of full-time engagement in the NGO Louvain Cooperation, I joined the Laboratory of Prospective Anthropology as a doctoral student to carry out my work on my thesis under the working title: Understanding the globalized society and the impact of digital technology through the Wikimedia movement.
Within the mouvement wikimedia, I am particularly interested in anthropological, ethical and political issues. Active on Wikiversity where I publish all my work, while intervening in the management of the site, from 2015, as administrator and more recently to be at the initiative of a Laboratory of study of the Wikimedia movement. 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 interest in off line Wikimedia activities and finally became founding member of the association Wikimedia Belgium within which I am board member since 2017.
