Where do I work

Currently settled in Paris, France after globetrotting the world as a remote worker (Dubai, Mauritius, New York, Montréal, Boston, Portugal, Spain, Martinique) and a couple years in Toronto, Canada. Grew up in France, where I created and managed a set of IT businesses for about 10 years (websites and custom software, hardware, maintenance…).
