WordPress Meetup in Paris

October 6th, 2016

The majority of my WordPress friends are in the US. Some are in Eastern Europe. But none of them are in France. Inspired by engaged WordPress Meetup organizers I met at WCCBUS, like Deborah Edwards or Mary Baum, I decided to look for a local meetup in Paris. I figured it would be a great […]

Pitching Vinubis Video Editor To The US WordPress Community

August 29th, 2016

I was looking at the WordCamp schedule the other day, trying to figure out which one I could go to. I pinpointed WCCBUS in Columbus, Ohio, August 26-28. I thought “Ok, I am in New York. My flight back to Paris is on September 2nd. This is doable.” I submitted the idea to Florian, the […]

Following a WordCamp Speaker

August 14th, 2016

I went to WordCamps as volunteer, as contributor and as simple attendee. What I never did, is to attend as speaker. Last weekend, at WordCamp Toronto, I was close! With thecplab, I was the communication assistant of one of them: Florian Gottschall. Florian, and the Vinubis team, recently released a plugin , WP Video Editor, that […]

Off to the WordCamp Toronto

While in Vienna, volunteering for the WordCamp Europe Communication Team, I met with the CEO of Vinubis, Florian Gottschall and his business partner Miriam Selzle. All started with a normal conversation about business, at the WCEUBall, […]

A Digital Nomad in Paris

July 4th, 2016

Wherever they go, Digital Nomads look for coworking places where they can bring their laptop and sit for hours while working remotely for their clients from all over the world, and eventually, make good connections. I just spent two months in Paris and that’s basically what I did everyday. As soon as I arrived, back […]

Souvenirs from WordCamp Europe in Vienna

June 29th, 2016

“So you were the one with the pink computer?” realized one of the WordCamp fellows I hung out with in the streets of Vienna on Sunday night… Indeed, if you attended the WordCamp Europe, last weekend, chances are that you saw me running around, taking pics with an iPad or seated somewhere between two conference […]

First Trip to Vienna

June 21st, 2016

I have never been to Vienna. I know its fame for classical music and empirical architecture. But what most attracts me there, is its popularity for international congress and conventions. Thus, when I heard that the WordCamp Europe 2016 will be hosted in the MuseumsQuartier of the Austrian capital, I did not think twice. I […]

Sorry Manhattan

October 24th, 2015

I was so thrilled, last Thursday, to take the elevator up to the 27th floor of one of downtown Brooklyn’s skyscrapers. For those you follow my adventures since last year, you might know that this is where the Brooklyn of Chamber of Commerce (BCC) has its headquarter. Yet, you might also know that I already […]

IAMSocial 1.0.2

October 14th, 2015

After submitting IAMSocial to the WordPress Directory in August, I finally heard back from the Review Team last week. As I expected, my theme was not approved to go live right away and my reviewer sent me a long list of issues to be fixed. After working hard on them, I resubmitted IAMSocial, now 1.0.2. […]

On the Spot!

September 11th, 2015

Last year I was in the audience. I remember listening to the speakers with excitement and admiration. I was about to start one of the most interesting adventure of my life: CUNY Service Corps! Today I was on the stage! Sharing with the 3rd cohort of students my experience working for the Brooklyn Chamber of […]

Dreams Can Come True

July 22nd, 2015

One of the first place I visited upon my arrival to New York was the United Nations Headquarters. I still remember the feeling I had when I contemplated in real life the famous building built by Le Corbusier that I saw so many times in pictures before. At the entrance, the flags of all member […]
