How can we work together ?
I am a freelance consultant, registered in France, who can
do consulting and development work for companies in France or abroad.
For French customers I can work on-site or off-site. Very
autonomous, I am used at working on projects from a distance. Thus, if
this your preference, I can work on your projects from my home office,
meeting with your team at regular intervals. This is how I typically proceed
when working for non-French customers.
