Welcome to my website.

I am an essayist and journalist. My main area of interest is politics, with a particular focus on conservative thought in France and Britain. I am also interested in the prospects of women and men in contemporary Western societies. You can hear and see me on France Culture and Arte.

Born in Paris in 1985, I grew up in Montpellier before joining the Ecole normale supérieure de la rue d’Ulm and then Sciences Po Paris. After working for a government minister and a think tank, I moved to London and became a journalist, before returning to Paris. I was editor-in-chief of the Debates/Ideas Pages at Le Point and then L’Express magazines. To find out more, please visit my LinkedIn page.

My first essay, Vous avez dit conservateur?, focused on British conservatism and the absence of a similar current in France; my second, Les hommes sont-ils obsolètes?, dealt with the status of men today; my third, De la France, explored the political sources of what is sometimes called the ‘mal français’. In my next book, I will investigate the meaning of conservatism.

I’m married with three children. I practice body-building and yoga. I like fine arts, especially painting.
