Adrien was born to French parents in Stanford, California, and his family's yearly summer trips to France have long been his most cherished memories. As an aspiring young professional cyclist, Adrien lived in Nice, between sea and mountain, where he would train and enjoy the local culture off the bike. After deciding to move away from professional cycling, Adrien spent a summer working on cheese and honey farms in the French Alps, learning the ins and outs of these traditional crafts. He recently graduated from OSU-Cascades with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and is eager to have a positive impact on the lives of the younger generation. Adrien has several years’ experience tutoring K-12 students in the Bay Area, and has also conducted research on the psychology of risk-taking in the outdoors through OSU-Cascades. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, writing, playing guitar, and gardening, and actively works on making mindfulness and meditation a part of his daily life.
