Antoine

This is Antoine. The only moustache in the office.

The fact that he has managed to find a niche in a team exclusively made up of women is proof that he has been good at cultivating the better side of his nature. By that we mean his feminine side…

Antoine grew up in the 80s. He enjoys Dragon Ball Z and Ovaltine, and is unrivalled when it comes to dancing the Mia*… And his dog's name is Marty, as in Marty McFly, from Back to the Future, which just goes to show how much the 80s still affect his daily life!

(*"Je danse le Mia" is a popular song recorded by French hip hop band IAM in 1994)

Antoine also has a passion for all things ending in "o". Video games, electro music and pizza mucho!

This authentic gone de Lyon* and former journalist now writes for Monsieur Simon, a website designed as a toolbox for modern parents who are both concerned and curious. Parents like him, because Antoine is also the father of two beautiful children (we're totally objective, obviously). And when Antoine toils back up the hill to his home, he breaks into a wide smile and whips on his Super Doting Dad's outfit, for the great delight of his 2 Padawans.
