I am a Bicycle Designer, Coffee Aficionados and Padawan Coder.
This blog prime objective is to review and document my interest in these fields.
I have spent my life on and beside bicycles. Started racing the streets of my natal town in France on BMX in the mid 80s, then started real BMX racing before going on bigger wheels during the European MTB boom. Raced MTB Cross-Country then Downhill which suited me the most to satisfy my love for speed.
While in my teenage years as I was spending my college years drawing bicycles my teachers suggested to my mother to send me to an apprenticeship so I could turn my passion for bicycle into a professional skill.
From there fast forward I have been fortunate to open 4 independent Bicycle shops in two countries, traveled the world while working for bicycle shops, as International Sales rep for an Elitist bike company while racing and touring all kind of amazing places.
I currently enjoy life in Japan through designing order made Titanium bicycles since 2001, cycling on quiet country side roads, running Marathon, sipping artisan’s roasted coffee and playing with coding.
