My conversion to marine carpentry began in 2010 after travelling South East Asia. I studied carpentry with the Compagnons du devoir in Toulouse, then I obtained a professional sailing certificate in Nice and I obtained a marin carpentry certificate after a year’s course at the Ateliers de l’Enfer un Douarnenez.
Before that, I was a marine biologist. I worked three years on marine turtle protection in French Guyana. And then, I worked as a professional diver and cartographer in a marine ecology research laboratory in Nice (France).
