Tell us about yourself:

I am the head of IT at the school and have been working at Mougins for over 15 years. I previously worked for IBM, Honeywell and for the French TV station TF1. I am someone that loves a challenge and have finished numerous Marathon’s, obstacle races and even a Swim and Run competition. I love the “Crossfit” lifestyle which is characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition, I hope to bring this to the school and create a community for students and staff.

Tell us about your greatest achievement

I was very proud of the staff during COVID, we went from a non online school, to having online lessons, meetings and support groups all while working from home (mostly). I was very impressed and still am at how hard the people of the school work towards adapting and learning to provide a better service. I want to say a “big thank you” to the staff for their relentless effort during COVID “well done” everybody.

Personally, last year I was accepted into the “Fédération Française de la Protection Rapprochée” after being vetted and this was a big milestone in being fully recognised in France within security.


What was your steepest learning curve?

A lot of my training in French has been challenging, I am fluent in French but nothing test’s your skills in a foreign language, other than advanced first aid under stress. I think any project with the right planning and organisation can be achieved, understanding what is needed for the task can help that curve be a little easier, remember the learning never stops!


Mougins is a great place because …

…of its community, I enjoy where I work because of the people I work with, staff and students make the school what it is: a great place!


What would you like to share with the community?

Some big things are coming to Mougins School in regards to IT, it is something that will improve greatly so watch this space. If you have any questions about security then please contact me and I will put you in contact with the right people.
