My private life: I am married and a happy father of two young daughters. We both learn from each other and we enjoy reading french books together and going outside together. When I am not busy with my daughters, I am working out to stay healthy and feel good (I recently bought a Peloton, hit me up if you are also a Peloton member). Traveling and tasting new food are some of my favorite experiences. But if you ask me where is the most beautiful place and where can we find the best food in the world, I have only one response: my hometown, Brittany in France (check my Linkedin banner to see the beauty of it).“ – Nicolas Boucher, Thales
