Who am I?

“Writing is a fine thing, because it combines the two pleasures of talking to yourself and talking to a crowd.” – Cesare Pavese

Since 2020, I’ve been talking to myself but also to you, the readers of this blog. As content manager at Okeenea, I write leading articles about accessibility in all its forms and I scrutinize all misconceptions related to disabilities. For what purpose? Promoting inclusion so that finally it can take its rightful place absolutely everywhere.

I strongly believe in the power of words and in the possibility of having an inclusive and caring society for all, without leaving anyone aside. For sure, combining both enables me to talk to you who represent all accessibility stakeholders. Because I’m convinced that we all have a role to play to reach this inclusive society.

After working for 5 years in a publishing house in Paris where I published hundreds of literature books that all had different themes, times and voices, I’m proud to give my voice to Okeenea’s mission! It’s my turn to master words, distort them, soften them up, sometimes abuse them so that they can reveal everything they have to tell you about accessibility.

My favorite articles?

They’re mostly the ones that make me see further ahead.
