About this website

I work with computers since forever. Currently I work in the data department of a French utility company, in the past I worked in several universities and in the automotive industry. This website represents a sort of archive of photos and articles about me that I want to share with the rest of the world.

I like to take photos of everything interesting I see around me. I often travel for various reasons and I have my camera with me most of the time. After many years of accumulating photos without any explanation on a personal website, I realized that it would be much more interesting to write a story to go together with the photos. What I saw and what I thought, impressions. And then keep these stories updated, since I often return several times in the same places: things change, I take new photos, I get new ideas.

All of this is also extremely useful to me, to remember places and feelings, but also to have a purpose in taking photos. Now I have to follow the thread of some kind of story and make sure the photos I take capture my ideas and feelings.

I also happen to write, from time to time, articles about other topics, usually related to information technology. In the past this website was organized as a blog, but recently I have reorganized it to be less dispersive and concentrate on the most interesting content. You can also read an history of this website.
