    En résumé

    After I graduated from a French Aeronautic Engineering school with a Master's Degree, I have been working as a project manager in embedded equipment and systems fields for aircrafts and ships industry. Experienced in business dealings with industrial partners and government agencies, I have developed a proven appetency for interactions and negotiations in several international contexts. Well organized, self-motivated, and open-minded, I take a real interest in making vision. A firm believer that value creation arises as the result of mixing experiences and point of views, I develop my approach to moving on to new, creative and agile industrial and economic areas, unwaveringly international and developing a high aptitude for challenge.
