Engineer and urban planner for more than ten years, I created Funfaircity two years ago to bring my passion for leisure venues closer to my job as a urban developer. I studied in particular at the Ecole Centrale de Lille (engineering diploma) and at the Politecnico di Milano (architecture and urban design). I worked on major urban projects in the Paris region and in Bordeaux.
I've been a theme park enthusiast since I was a kid (over 90 parks visited all over the world) and I'm fascinated by how cities are transforming to accommodate more and more new places of recreation. Funfaircity is an additional professional activity to my main job as a land developer in Bordeaux. It allows me many professional meetings in the entertainment business. I enjoy writing about this on my blog and advising all city and real estate professionals interested in this topic.
From a personal point of view, I live and work in Bordeaux, France. I have two beautiful little girls and play drums in a rock cover band.
About the company:
Funfaircity is an observatory of new trends and places of leisure, recreation and entertainment particularly in cities and real estate projects. On the blog, it offers regular publications for a french professional audience. I wish my work on this project can make the culture of entertainment inspire urban design and real estate development. It also offers some tools like a map, a dictionary and a monthly newsletter about what’s new.
From now on, Funfaircity is a one-person micro business and advises all interested city and real estate professionals.
