1.How did you come to Asia?
I grew up in Tahiti, and that's where I got ’contaminated’ by the passion for Asia and the Pacific area. Going back to France in my teenage years, I felt a real culture shock. I wanted to go back to Asia and as soon as I could, I did it. After a couple of years traveling around, I came back to France to be more serious in my studies. I started a business school. While studying in Paris, I fell in love at first sight with a Taiwanese journalist working for the woman magazine Marie Claire. Right after graduating, I joined her in Taiwan in 1993. We got married, and I spent the 15 years after in the island.
