"In a constantly changing world, being immobile means going backwards."
I grew up in France. I spent 20 years in a Paris suburb very close to Versailles. My great fear at this time was to get out this cocoon of a life. My first jump from this life was when I decided study in Lyon, 500km from Paris. I spent 2 years studying Electronics and Information Technology in this beautiful city close to the Alps. Well this jump was a bug's jump: not enough for me. I wanted more. After my next small jump to Paris for a one-year job, I jumped to London year to take a Master of Science in Spacecraft Technology and Satellite Communications. Absolutely terrific subject: I loved these studies. It was my best student year ever. London was so pretty, so different, so cosmopolitan. It definitively gave me a taste for travels. I needed to jump more. "Do you want to go to New York", someone asked me one day. I could not have expected a more exciting proposal. So Here I am in New York, enjoying this marvelous city, sometimes too crazy I think, sometimes so irresistible. Great city, great job in Schlumberger as Information Technology developer, great teammates. But I needed to jump again.
I decided to skydive. What a challenge! It is not jumping from one city to another, it is jumping out of a plane. I did it and want to do more now.
Where will I go next?? Well, I am ready for anything. I am not sure what my next destination will be, but I am sure that I am going to JUMP again. Jump, Jump, Jump….!!!
Somebody said one day "Dans un monde en mouvement, l'immobilisme est de recul" which can be translated basically by "In a constantly changing world, being immobile means going backwards" so my thoughts are "Move, Travel, Jump…!!"
