I'm Vivian, a 21 years old guy from Toulouse (south of France) and I make stuff.
I like to build everything needed to enjoy living outdoor or in remote locations, from backpacks to boats and work with any kind of materials.
This sumer I converted my grandpa's fridge truck into an off grid camper van with solar panels, then I drove to Eindhoven do a master in social design at the Design Academy of Eindhoven.
As I'm currently working on some off-grid projects (rain water tower, floating man powered houseboat) I would enjoy taking part in some alternative living projects while I'm in the Netherlands!
I'm using tools since I'm 6 and forged my first knife at 13.
Since then, I kept on designing and building all kind of things involving metal, fabric, ceramics, plastics...
So far I made many knives, an electric kiln, industrial belt grinder, a rocking chair, a CNC machine, some 3D printers, a camper van, some tree nets, backpacking gears (backpacks, hammocks, stoves...), a lute, and a kind of boat.

I have a scientific baccalaureate in engineering so have some knowledge in electricity, electronics, mechanics, materials. After that I did a bachelor in art and design, I learned to do some technical drawings, painting, engraving, printing, photography and editing.
I spent a lot of time in my grandparents farm, so I'm used to all kind of maintenance tasks.
I also know how to make cheese, but I can't eat it.
I'm a climber and an archer.
I love backpacking.
