Originally from France, I have been living in the United States for close to 10 years.
My education, interests, and professional career lie around technology, business, and entrepreneurship.
I am currently an Engagement Manager at McKinsey serving technology companies across functions (Engineering, Sales, Strategy, etc.). Before becoming a consultant, I created a couple of companies and worked for a major corporation in Silicon Valley.
In my free time I like outdoor sports: windsurfing, kitesurfing, snowboarding …
