For a long time, I have been working in companies dealing with inside&outside customers and big clients. Nowadays, some health issues lead me to shift from working in companies to do research on Public Health and pro-bono consultancy in the Third Sector. I devote a good part of my time to volunteering since I consider it a way to give back to society what society provides me.
