He has done nothing, who has not sought to accomplish something greater than oneself.

 — Jean Arnaud 

As a Tech-entrepreneur

I am a serial entrepreneur and the co-founder of Nova, a company that aims to accelerate academic and corporate research with the assistance of artificial intelligence (AI). I live between Nice-Cannes (France), London (UK), and Boston (USA). I have had the chance to speak at different venues and institutions, such as SXSW and Harvard, about the future of AI-empowered research and the future of higher education and K-12 schools. I I also developed an AI-Tutor for an educational group called Open Mind and its educational laboratory, aiming to transform education. I believe that technology should have a significant impact, and because education is the very foundation of the ideal society we want to achieve, I strive to make education more efficient through knowledge application and personalized to help each student realize their true potential through technology.

Education is about helping individuals reach their true potential and guiding them to collectively contribute to something greater: humanity.

As a professor

and an educator

As a professor and educator, continuing my exploration of AI and the impact of new technologies, I have led various projects in digital immersive and interactive environments. These include teaching Latin historical and philosophical classes in ancient Rome, making the experience more entertaining and alive by enabling dialogues with AI avatars of Julius Caesar, Cicero, and Marcus Aurelius.

Additionally, dyslexic students used voice commands to produce texts, giving them the chance to express their ideas without the barriers of writing difficulties. Students also worked on language manipulation using the same vocal commands, enabling them to grasp nuances between accents. Moreover, they created posters and videos about the ideal city, Harmonia, which they had to invent using their research, cultural knowledge, and scientific and technological understanding of current problems. They used this knowledge to solve today's issues and reflected on the values the city should embody.


I have led hands-on projects for active education and participated in creating innovative and interdisciplinary modules that always emphasize philosophy to develop critical thinking and art for creativity. I developed an entrepreneurship program where students prepared their entrepreneurial projects to pitch during a Shark Tank with eminent experts as the jury. I also led projects involving the creation of video games, digital songs, movies, 3D interactive sculptures in the metaverse, and painting in VR.

I have been awarded several times for the quality of my teaching and my innovation by France, Uk and USA.

As a writer and artist

As a writer and artist, I explore the inner forces at work in the creative process and the ontological metamorphosis through the demiurgic effort. I seek to understand to what extent new technologies deepen the artistic experience for both the creator and the spectator, who becomes a collaborator participating in the enhancement of the aesthetic experience.I am recognized as a leader of the digital renaissance with my symphonic and palimpsestic experiences that unfold layers of multiple meanings within the unity of the artwork. I gave several conferences to talk about my 'trophies,' 'my soliloquies,' and my multilayered 3D statue in the metaverse, Prometheus the Dawnbringer, along with my dynamic art explorations in physical versions, digital versions, or assisted by AI. There are no better critics than artists themselves, who can bring from their own experience all the novelty of the invisible whispers they heard in their quest. They are the best to develop philosophical insight about their explorations.
