Born on the Western coast of France, in love and always amazed by my surroundings, my path has been lead by curiosity for as long as I can remember. From the long hours holding my fishing rod, sitting on the banks of numerous streams, to the afternoons gazing at the clouds on my back in the suburban garden where I grew up, I have always observed and enjoyed making time for it.
Orchards fruit pruning made most of my highschool summers. I then graduated in Literature, Languages & Foreign Civilizations – Arabic & English – in 2009 and in Landscape Architecture Engineering & Design in 2014. Experiences in botanical gardens (Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, United Kingdom & North Carolina Botanical Garden, United States of America), in landscape design companies (MB Paysage, Morocco & Verte, Norway) and in regional natural parks (Pnr Brière & Pnr Livradois-Forez, France), along with a strong and diverse curriculum nurtured all the skills necessary to a gardener and landscape designer. Designing and implementing gardens as a student job, my first company made me a cycling gardener and landscape architect for two years. In the meantime, I had completed my first Permaculture Design Course at the École de Permaculture du Bec Hellouin (France) and started my Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design with the Permaculture Association United Kingdom.
In 2018, I embraced a nomadic lifestyle, with my old firetruck & my bike. I volunteered in small farms in Japan and in a vegetable market garden in Switzerland and, after a short contract in a landscape studio, I decided in 2019 to work on my diploma and my permaculture teaching full time. I completed my Training of Teachers at the Applewood Permaculture Centre (United Kingdom), participated in a Work That Reconnects workshop in France while giving a hand to friends who are setting up their own projects, here and there in France.
In late 2020, I began my arborist training in France and graduated with the Permaculture Association Britain ! The online event was the end of 3 years and 3 months of work, during which I explored many thematics throughout my 10 designs.
Comes 2021, with projects mostly located in the North-West corner of France…
