A bit about me...

Born on the 6th of January 1987, in Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe).

My mother is from Saint Barthélemy, and my father is from Guadeloupe, where I spent the biggest part of my childhood (11 years to be precise).

In 1998 I moved to France to live with my uncle in the suburbs of Paris.

I then moved to Switzerland, where I made it to the boarding house of a private international school near Geneva called Collège du Léman. I stayed in this boarding house 6 years, where I went through the French system until I achieved my Baccalauréat Français Scientifique with a specialization in Physics and Chemistry.

Then I went on to continue my studies in Geneva at the Institute of Finance and Management, where I completed a double Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and of Economics (BA Econ). I then obtained my Swiss nationality in 2013.

My trade might be Finance, but my two main passions are computer sciences and travelling. For the last 3 years now, I have taken the time to go backpacking in Central and Eastern Europe, with the aim of discovering and trying to understand as many cultures as possible in this very diverse world.


This is a base set of skills that I use regularly, for more info and commendations please refer to LinkedIn.
Business acumen is by far the most important, the most fun and is the most demanding. Keeping up to date with market trends, finding unexploited or poorly managed niche markets. Minding decision impacts and consequences while being nimble and multipurposed.
Data is the key to intelligent decision making. From mining to reporting, it is inherently important to understand where it comes from to where it flows. Choosing the right analysis based on the availability of that data can be crucial in interpretation and validity.
Because emergencies and issues do not hold a schedule, it is important to remain reactive to the business.
Communication and collaboration are often the biggest driver of a company's growth. Whether working alone or as part of a team, adaptability and consistency have always proven to be assets.
