I was born and raised in Paris, France. In 2009, I completed a Degree in Chinese Studies (Philosophy, Literature and Arts) at INALCO (National Institute for Oriental Languages and Civilizations). I was then a Chinese teacher in several high schools for five years. This has been a very enriching experience, especially at Saigon French International Highschool in Vietnam.

The first time I heard about Bitcoin was in 2011. I started to test it and design several decentralized apps from April 2013.

I worked for an iOS payment app as a sales and community outreach, and we had the chance to discover Vitalik's Ethereum whitepaper in December 2013.

In 2014, I joined the marketing team of OpenClassrooms, one of the leading e-learning companies in Europe. I set up the Customer Service from scratch, handling more than 1,000 requests a week.

I led the crowdsale campaign of iExec: we raised 10,000 BTC ($12 m eq.) on April 19, 2017. I was iExec Head of Communications on this project for about 3 years.

I'm the founder of Strat, which mission is to amplify the Web 3 movement. I tought Marketing Strategy atEM Lyon, one of the most reputated business school in France.I gave a hand at kickstartingInterlude, and other gaming projects.

I'm a volonteer at Emmaüs Connect, an organisation focusing on digital inclusion, and I also contribute on several different projects as a Web3 hacker (Solidity and React), including Kiez DAO: a new form of DAO, you will love it.

I'm now the CEO of Āto, an NFT minting service that allows you to edit and add your own IP legal contract to your NFT, so please reach out!
