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 hold a BA in Economics from the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, an MA in International Business from ESCE Paris, a BA (Hons) in Theology from the Institut Protestant de Théologie in Paris/University of Strasbourg (dual degree) and an MA in Christian Education and Formation from Princeton Theological Seminary.
I live with my wife Jess in Surrey, where I serve as Youth Minister in a Church of England. I speak and write on youth ministry, social innovation, and technology.
