About me

I am an addicted person. I try to change my addictions regularly for sanity.
I am curious. I like curious people.
I am a gourmet. I like to cook and to eat. I prefer quality food but I want to eat everything once, twice if I liked it !

I like hiking and getting lost in beautiful cities, and discover unusual and disused places as well.
I hang a lot in alternative places such as hackerspaces, artistic squats, etc
I like complex approaches in thinking, like Kundera, Spinoza, Bourdieu, Chomsky... If you're also into it, let's talk about it !

I used to be a maker (=prototyper), doing electronics and software for artistic projects (http://www.bento-creations.com). Now I'm preparing a PhD on tactile illusions. Fun, isn't it ?
I'm a juggler. I used to be a scout and to play the piano.
