About Me

🧐 ANOTHER innovation expert? Not really... Ex-French Air Force officer turned innovation professional, I make innovation a thrilling, enjoyable journey infused with daring creativity and unwavering team synergy. 🚀

From Weapon System Officer

To Professionnal Innovator

Originating from France, my journey has been one of continuous learning and humble pursuits. As a child, I was captivated by the skies, dreaming of navigating the vast expanses. This passion led me to my first professional calling as a Weapon System Officer on fighter jets in the French Air Force. The thrill of soaring and the discipline of the military carved a resilience in me that would become the bedrock of my professional ethos.

Yet, as one dream was realized, another took shape - the dream of founding a family. This led me to make the difficult decision of leaving the French Air Force, finding a new home in Switzerland, and embarking on a second career as an innovation professional.

My experience in military aviation, combined with my academic background in innovation at EPFL and Stanford University, has given me a unique perspective on innovation - one that is both pragmatic and ambitious. Since 10+ years, I'm navigating with ease between the dynamic worlds of startups and corporate innovation. I strive to bring together the best of both worlds to realize ambitious visions. My mission? Unleashing the hidden innovation potential within your teams and your company to secure a thriving future.
