Hi, I’m Simon. I was born in Belgium and moved to France at 18. I studied law and worked as a lawyer for 7 years, but always had a strong tendency to doing geeky stuff. I was interested in Ethereum mid-2015 and founded Ethereum France a few months later.

I'm also the cofounder and vice-president of two French non-profits dedicated to blockchain tech, La Chaintech (400+ members) and Ethereum France (300+ members). In the past, I worked on the VariabL project in 2017 - 2018 (a ConsenSys project) and the LGO Exchange during 2019.

I am a fan of blockchain technology, Ethereum, travel and writing. You may find me under the name of disto on some dark corners of the internet.
