Writing and curiosity brought me onto the internet. While studying in a French business
school, I found myself learning more on the internet than attending the courses (which I did, still 😉 ).
So, when I had read so much things that I considered I’d like to have a say, I launched my first blog : Tête de Quenelle (in french).
Two years and hundred post later, I joined the french media OWNI and writing became my main activity. In this small but promising startup, I learned the good practices of professional & innovative journalism.
I was in charge of the economic section of the website, in an intense period of debt crisis among Europe. This was a good opportunity for me to build an expertise in debt crisis, banking, and more specifically monetary issues, Irish, Icelandic and Greek crisis.
At the same time, my blog became a bastion of alternatives and heterodox thoughts and analysis. I call for radical reforms of the monetary system and for the implementation of a unconditional basic income.
Later, with my diploma in hand, I went freelance for a few months, until the french leading economic newspaper La Tribune hired me. There, I had the opportunity to work in the web team of a more traditional newsroom and learnt a lot from this experience. Unfortunately, as the company suffers from financial difficulties, my contract ended. I was back in freelance.
Since january 2012, I contributed to several media such as MyEurop and Basta! . But most of all, I am enjoying my free time to take part to other personal and activist projects. First, I took the initiative of the launching of a brand new website for the promotion of the basic income in France. Second, I became the co-editor of Ouishare Media, a new website about the collaborative economy.
Also, I recently launched an english blog on economics called Boiling Frogs in order to engage conversation with other people around the Globe, and improve my English as well :).
February 2013, I quit Paris and go backpacking around Europe / France. I’m trying to meet local activists, organize local events, workshops around basic income and the collaborative economy. You can follow my roadmap here. Contact me if I come nearby 😉
March 22th, 2013, we finally launch a european citizens’ initiative for unconditional basic income. I’m the french coordinator of the project. For more information, please visit our website: basicincome2013.eu.
Blogger, journalist, somewhat economist and activist: as you can see, my profile is pretty versatile. But my activities are very connected to each others and the very raison d’être of this website is precisely to highlight the consistency of my approach.
