I was born in a French Canadian family. I started to eat fully raw in 1981. After 5 years of postgraduate studies in philosophy and psychology, I held a private psychotherapy practice in Montreal during the 1990s. My story continued through inspiring initiatory journeys in India. There, in 2001, I met my French wife. Together we carried on a life of travels worldwide, particularly in the jungles of Sumatra, where we are now developing an ethnobotanical garden.
