Distributing Adobe and Apple throughout Africa and the french overseas territories is great, but in the end François got tired of lying on the beach, and ended up missing Paris’s periphique (motorway).

In 2011, Francois launched himself as an entrepreneur when he created the website ArtyWalrus.com, which he sold in 2013.
