    Summary

    Born 范中流, Beijing, China French citizenship I'm a creator. I create concepts, solutions, services and companies. During my career to date, I have created over 50 different projects, received numerous mentions and awards in multiple industries, across 3 different continents. I believe in innovation and I don't fear trying. I like to tackle new challenges, discover new paths and learn new things. My goal is to achieve excellency, to reach perfection and to bring joy to people through new inventions. I never stop exploring new areas, embracing new ideas, meeting new people and solving new problems. I worked with some of the best specialists in their fields, built great teams and led them to the top. And I will keep doing it because this is what I do best. During my free time, I spend a lot of time reading books, taking photos, drawing and playing video games. Yet, above every hobby, I'm a true football fan. The European football, one actually played with foot. I keep myself up-to-date with la Ligue 1, la Liga, Serie A and the Premier League. I also love to play football, mens sana in corpore sano, and if you find yourself in the Valley, don't hesitate to ping me for a game.
