Salutations :) I grown up on a French family farm between fields and wildlife-full forests. Travels, sciences and community values run deep in our familial DNA, so Wikipedia and multiculturalism were natural paths to walk. I've been academically curious with a bachelors in History and Natural Language Processing, a Master of Chinese language and e-learning and an MBA in Technology and Innovation (Taiwan). I now work as a e-learning professional, web app developer, MOOC creators (22 OpenEdx), and small projects manager. When student, I lived 5 years in Taiwan and 6 months in India, which I consider my 2nd and 3rd homes due to friend-family there.
As Wikimedian since 2004, I mostly edit articles or listen-coordinate projects. I've been the creator and lead listener-coordinator of the Graphic Labs and Map workshop, which created or improved 15,000+ images and maps. We pushed with few others for Wikipedia Cartographic guidelines. I had nearly similar role on the CJK Stroke Order Project, the Ancient Chinese Characters Project (~15,000 files), and the Wikimedia France's rapid audio recording system LinguaLibre.org. My encyclopedic contributions are various, with a track record on Chinese culture, contemporary social conflicts and Human rights. I've been administrator of Wikipedia FR and Commons between 2005 and 2008.
I attended the Wikimania 2007,'13,'14,'17,'18,'19,'21, Hackathons 2013,'14,'15,'16, '17,'18,'19, Wikiconvention francophone 2016.
