Born in 1969, he developed a passion for computer science in his youth but chose to study biology. He then attended a bioinformatics training at the Pasteur Institute in 1997 at the end of which he got hired in the scientific IT department. He has continuously worked there since. Not only was he skilled in biology but also in system administration, databases, and programming.

He was introduced to NetBSD in 1999 and quickly became a dedicated user and hacker. He became a NetBSD developer in 2007 for working on Linux/i386 (32 bits) emulation on NetBSD/amd64 (64 bits).
