I was born and raised in France, where I started my career as an entrepreneur. In 2011, I founded a training center dedicated to teaching Mandarin Chinese in Paris.

I live with my wife in Surrey, where I train, coach and empower young people in a Church of England. I speak and write on youth ministry, social innovation, and technology.


  • Contemporary Theology, Institut Protestant de Théologie, (Paris, France)


Based on Bruno Latour’s philosophy of the actors, I argue that the concept of network is the new loci for theology in the Digital Age.
