  • Description

    Description

    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

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.
