My Journey

Proactive people all share one thing: the desire to experience their true potential and contribute to their community. My purpose is to help you unleash your full potential.

I had the incredible opportunity to play a role in the creation of UNIX and the building blocks of the Internet while at UC Berkeley and the prestigious Xerox PARC in Silicon Valley.  Subsequently, I helped launch two successful startups. Now based in France's wine country, I coach business executives in over 30 countries, sharing the secrets of how to create long-term success. As part of my work, I have encountered inspiring people from all over the world, including heads of states. 

My passion to explore, to strive and to share

I have been practicing Karaté since 1971, which contributes to understanding focus, discipline, persistence, and building internal peace. In my upcoming articles, I share how practicing a martial art helps build key leadership skills.

My family

I have been married to my wife, Annick, for over 30 years and we have visited many countries together. Annick is the leader behind the leader, the powerhouse in the background. We have two daughters, Pauline and Elise. When we are not visiting a new destination, we share our time between the French wine country, Ivory Coast and the San Francisco Bay Area.
