About me

Following my experience as a mentor and instructor within the field of EOD/IED search in

Foreign Legion, I seek to continue pursuing new challenges in this field. I am willing to
further share my knowledge and experience acquired during my work in Africa, as well as
skills acquired through courses and accreditations.
