04 My journey

3 continents, many cat lives, and continuously learning

2000

French elites

2004

I was awarded a Masters in Economics from the ICN School of Business, one of France's top 5 (back then) elite business schools.

The big leagues

I was awarded my MBA in economics and strategic management from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business (GSB) - now Booth School - having studied under 3 nobel prize winning professors.

1999 - 2006

A consultant is born

2006 - 2012

First in the strategy practice of Andersen Consulting, then in enterprise tech at Accenture, followed by a stint at RCBG, the leading TMT c-suite advisory firm.

Consultant to the CEOs

I joined SSA & Co (the McKinsey of operations) to help rebuild it post acquisition as the 2nd employee and built it up to 300 consultants alongside the CEO, starting our European offices and launching our co-investment practice.

2012

Halftime

2014 - present

I left my consulting career to start my first company, BrainTracer, the first mHealth app to treat depression in partnership with McLean (Harward). I also joined a venture studio and became a startup mentor.

Giving back

I was invited by the German government to help launch the German Accelerator NYC (5 unicorns) and became a lead mentor to many startups. I was the launch ambassador in NYC for City A.I., an instructor at General Assembly and joined the Digital Competence Lab as a DeepTech expert

2015

A.I. for Wall Street

I joined my friend Christian Jorg to build and scale Opentopic, Inc. An early, NYC based, pioneer in A.I. productization, part of the inaugural class of the IBM Watson Ecosystem

2018

A spooky, new era

I exited Opentopic to focus on my passion for quantum and attended MIT (certificates) for Quantum Computing. After 15 years in NYC, I relocated to Miami Beach to spend more time by the water, indulging in my greatest passion - sailing.
