France and abroad and took breaks to work for NGO Greenpeace as a street fundraising manager. Then he studied digital fabrication at the Fab Academy under Neil Gershenfeld’s (Center for Bits and Atoms / MIT, USA) and Anna Kaziunas France’s direction in 2012 at AS220Fablab in Providence (USA) where he was also an artist in residence.

He also worked as a video-maker and video-editor on the AIME project at le Medialab Sciences Po Paris.
