Overview:

I am a multicultural entrepreneur specialising in digital strategies, education and mobile technologies (mainly for smartphones).

I am a well-travelled educator and I lectured and supervised students in France, New Caledonia and New Zealand, as well as holding workshops, public speaking and carrying out research in several different locations around the world. Besides, I am a multiple award-winning researcher at Colab – Auckland University of Technology focusing on Mobile Technologies & Education. And, I am one of the two co-founders of MINA [ Mobile Innovation Network Australasia ], which aimed to explore the possibilities of interaction between people, content and mobile devices.

I am deeply interested in people’s experiences and stories, engaging with them and working with new technologies. I value working collaboratively, taking risks and having some laughs while still being professional.

Conjointly to Academia, I am the director of ATZ119, which specialises in mobile content production and visual communication and I am one of the two founding partners at VIRTUO, dealing with mobile research and development, digital strategies and consultancy.

Lastly, I am also deeply involved in building and maintaining strong relationships between France, New Caledonia and New Zealand.
