Son histoire et sa nature empathique l’ont conduit à développer une fibre sociale marquée.

Ce pilier de 42, « simple mortel » passionné de Kendo et de bonne chère, rappelle volontiers ses deux devises : « Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité » et « J’ai pas atteint 2 m et 120 Kg en mangeant de la salade ! »
