A word about your assistant/teacher!


I'm Thomas; with over 15 years' experience in the IT industry, I've worked with major companies, military institutions, banks and insurance companies.

Recently, I decided to put my IT expertise to good use in the local community.
A little anecdote: My carpenter only stopped using faxes in 2020 in favor of email! I'm really proud of him, he now saves several hundred euros a year for a faster, more modern service, and above all, satisfied customers.

That's when I really realized that the world had moved on much too fast for many people, and that I had so much to offer in the way of local services!

I will use my patience and pedagogy to explain things in a simple way, with step-by-step sheets if necessary.

I'm available to discuss your IT needs and help you make technology more accessible.
Whether you need training or help with your projects, I'm here to support you.

I am Thomas, in my forties, a computer production engineer and a vegetable gardener!

I remain freelance and work part-time for large companies in my specialty, scheduling, automation via VTOM, I code and dev every day.

The rest of the time, I take care of my ‘little farm’ in Limousin with my lovely wife, dogs, chickens, ducks, and vegetable garden.

"I want to help people overcome their fear of computers and be useful to my community".
