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.

Doctor in Political and Social Sciences (PhD thesis access), I'm a son of a laborer father and an independent mother, born in Nivelles in January 1969 to join a humanity which has already doubled in size since the day of my birth. Originally from Frasnes-lez-Gosselies, I’ve had 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 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. I was active in the Pirate Party of Belgium for almost three years before realizing that our political systems, based on elections and interparty competition, are at the root of the current governance crises. Following this experience, I developed a reflection through a personal independent studies named Trilogie pour un monde juste et sain then got involved more actively in community projects and fatherhood.

More recently, in June 2016, I've finished a University Certificate in Economic and Social Ethics which give me the opportunity to precise personal convictions in theoretical field. One year later; from June 2017, I joined the Laboratory of Prospective Anthropology for a self financed doctoral study in sociological and political science. My PhD research still in progress concern the Imagine a World. A book from the first three chapters of my thesis is titled Le mouvement Wikimédia. Derrière la planète Wikipédia se cache toute une galaxie !

Within the Wikimedia movement, I am particularly interested in anthropological, ethical and political issues. Mostly active on Wikiversity where I publish all my work, while intervening in the management of the site as administrator from 2015. 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 participation and interest in off-line Wikimedia activities and finally became founding member of the association Wikimedia Belgium and board member since 2017 to 2019.
