While born in Lyon, Nicolas spent his childhood in the United States before moving back to France as an adolescent. He achieved a bachelor’s degree in fine arts at the School of Fine Arts in Bordeaux and a bachelor’s in anthropology at the University of Toulouse. In Bordeaux, he worked as an English tutor and later worked as an English teacher in a middle school on the French island of Mayotte. In Toulouse, he volunteered in a collective dedicated to teaching French as a Second Language to asylum seekers. As of 2022, he lives in the Netherlands with his Dutch partner and their beautiful daughter. He continues to specialize in anthropology within the Research Masters in Social Sciences program of the University of Amsterdam. Once again uprooted, Nicolas is happy to use his teaching experience while staying in touch with the French language.
