Hi! My name is David and welcome to my website.

I am a former scholar who switched to I.T. to interact more directly with what used to be both my academic area of research and my main source of enthusiasm.

In a nutshell, I'm am just nuts about data processing, automation and somewhat sensitive to cybersecurity: I am a nerd based in Lyon (FRA) currently working as a consultant.
