    Florian Valette: network engineer living in Australia

    Florian Valette: network engineer living in Australia

    Florian is a dear friend of Jeremie who currently lives in Melbourne, Australia. In 2016, he needed a new challenge in his life, and a friend of his who recently moved to Australia told him about the opportunities in this country. It didn't take long to Florian to decide that he was ready for a new chapter, so he quit his job and jumped on a plane to the other side of the world. He is living a happy life over there as a permanent resident.

    Before that, Florian grew up in France and did a lot of acrobatic gymnastics when he was young, specializing in tumbling. He shares with us how he picked this sport - which is not really common for boys in France - and how after years of training he eventually ended up training with the French national team, and competed in French and European championships!

    When he got older, Florian decided to prioritize his studies and pursue a passion for IT. It all started when his parents got a computer, he taught himself how to build websites and got hooked. Florian decided to focus on this and eventually graduated with a Master's degree in network engineering. During his studies, he had the opportunity to study abroad so grabbed the chance to go to London and then to San Francisco. He eventually got a job for OVH, a French cloud computing company which offers VPS, dedicated servers and other web services.

    As he is an expert, we challenged Florian to explain how Internet actually works (because it is not magic as you might think) which was pretty fun - check out this website that we mentioned in the conversation https://www.submarinecablemap.com.

    Techn0yogi: bodybuilder, kandi kid & DJ

    Techn0yogi: bodybuilder, kandi kid & DJ

    Rob - aka Techn0yogi - starts off by talking to us about the time in his life when he was competing in body building. He talks about all the sacrifices and discipline required for it including the food he ate and how far he got with the competitions.

    After 12 years of being a certified PT and competing in body building, he started to question things about the way he was working out, training others and the way he was eating etc. He tried fasting, then tried to reduce the amount of meat he ate and eventually became vegan when he took his yoga teacher training. Around this time, he also changed the way he was working out and eventually started to live a more meaningful and intentional life with the yoga community.

    We then talk about his love for Techno music. He started going to Ultra Miami at a pretty young age and was considered a raver, even taking part in dance battles! Techn0yogi shares that his sister's boyfriend is the one who taught him the basics of DJing with proper turntables and vinyls when he was a teenager. He stopped playing for around 10 years but is now a resident DJ in Miami.

    And lastly, we talked about Kandi jewelry which is now a huge part of his personal style. Techn0yogi met a girl one day who gifted him a Kandi bracelet. They then went to a music festival in Canada together which was a Kandi festival so he started doing a few small pieces to take with him. After the festival, he totally fell in love with gifting pieces of artwork and started creating bigger pieces. He now gifts his artwork to DJs such as Paul Oakenfold, Diplo, Carnage and Eric Morillo.

    We also talked about gratitude and appreciation for life along with other topics. We had such a lovely conversation and we really hope you enjoy listening!

    Gabrielle Demmer: the importance of being your true self

    Gabrielle Demmer: the importance of being your true self

    Demmer was born and raised in Miami, Florida and tells us about how belly dancing and Flamenco dancing from the age of 3 gave her self confidence to perform on stage but also how to be comfortable within her own body. She talks to us about self expression and why dancing (in any form) is so important to her.

    We discuss her rebellious teenage years, getting her first tattoo in a garage at the age of 16 and the meaning behind it. Demmer also shares about her religious upbringing and the change her mom made to switch to Buddhism and how this decision affected her life.

    Demmer studied finance in college but after her partner went through a life altering event, she decided to do something that brought her true joy, so got into the hospitality industry. She loves festivals for the music, the freedom of self expression and also for the magical moments that happen during these events. She tells us a really cool story about a festival experience and why she does what she does.

    This is a really lovely conversation where we cover a wide range of subjects as we get to know Demmer on a deeper level.
