Born & raised in France, came to the US (CA) for grad school in '87, moved to MA in '91.

Love the ocean and mountains. A sailor since my early teens. Raced 420s and later big boats. Bareboat charterer on tropical or European family vacations.
Some windsurfing at the dawn of the sport and in my teens.
Have wanted to give kiteboarding a try for years. Finally took the plunge in the Spring of 2011.
Despite relatively few good days and limited time on the water this summer, I'm totally addicted and eager to progress in the sport.
Family, all things manual and artistic, sailing, skiing, hiking, road-biking, mountain-biking, soccer, world traveling, cooking, baking, photography, painting.
