" Ecodesigner and modern nomad ..."
WHO AM I ?
My passion is to show the potential of waste and how it can be transform into a design item. I am autodidact, ecodesigner and pluridisciplinary artist, founder of the ART D’ECO & DESIGN company in 1998, and have been developing and promoting the potential of re-using waste & unwanted materials in the field of design. I am a modern nomad and have been lecturing and teaching in many countries all around the world.
My mission is to empower individuals, professionals, companies to change their views on waste and to impulse social change. I lecture in universities , I speak at conferences, I give workshops in elementary schools and I train people to make ecodesign articles. I also free lance for crafts organizations and companies in re designing with their wastes.
I have 20 years of experience on the ground in a variety of countries of different cultures in India, Ukraine, Cameroun, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Greece and France.
