Now!

Now is a page (like the about or contact ones) , where I describe what I’m doing/working on « now »…

(Update: 09/15/2021)

tl;dr – I left France in 2016 (after a burnout and a depression) and am now living near Cotonou in Benin, a country I started visiting in 2009 to produce music (Brass Bands mainly). When I moved, I stopped working in the « musicbiz », and started evaluating new business opportunities with my Beninese wife. When she died in 2019, I went back to my consulting job, but towards Sub-Saharan Africa, Francophone mainly.

Future is now
