I am French, have lived about 20 years in the US (California) before moving to New Zealand and the Kapiti Coast over a year ago. I love this community and would like to contribute to it. I previously, and for 15 years, was a Commodity Trader, importing and exporting all over the world. My expertise is in Trading, International Business, Importing and Exporting, Supply Chain Management and Customer Management. Volunteering has always been a big part of my life. In Los Angeles, I was a mentor for many years in the Big Brother Big Sister association, which pairs at-risk youth with mentors on a long term basis. I also advocated and volunteered for the Monday Night Mission, a group helping the homeless on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles.
