About me

I studied in Sherbrooke by the Vermont State Border, before crossing the pond to live in Belgium (Leuven and Brussels) for a few years to complete my studies and currently living in England (Poole / Dorset) where I hitched already a couple of time to London or back to the continent. Worked in Ethiopia in Cooperation for a few months and here I am back in North America
