 I’m from Toulon in the South of France. I’ve been a Digital Marketer most of my working life running my own Digital Agency. Along the way I discovered crypto currencies and blockchain technology and this has turned into a huge passion and something I love sharing with people, teaching and talking about. I developed my own training courses on how to invest into the crypto market smartly and safely. I also consult with businesses on Blockchain technology and deliver talks on both these topics.
