I live in the south suburb of Bordeaux (12 minutes by train, the station is quite close to our home) in a house built by ourselves on 1000 m2. We are next to one large natural space (wood, ponds). And also not very far from the highway which goes to Arcachon and the Pyla Dune and the ocean.
I am a teacher-researcher in earth sciences, oceanography, and ecopsychology at the University of Bordeaux. My main interest is about the roots of the ecological crisis and how we can change our civilization to a more human one.
I love to travel and I especially love French Polynésia

I love exchanging, sharing about all the subjects that are part of my life: artistic practice, travels, philosophy, psychology, ecology, ecopsychology,...and French Polynesia.
The work itself will be a source of exchange about techniques and materials in eco-construction.
I can lead you to feel more in contact with nature with simple practices.
I need help to finish some work in the house. People having some knowledge of plumbing, carpentry and/or electricity will be appreciated ! You will probably have to help me with cooking and washing and simple everyday task...

The train (10 minutes by foot to go to the railway station) in one direction takes you to Bordeaux (12 minutes) it takes you to Arcachon in the other direction (39 minutes).
