Hi, I'm Anne-Laure. I'm an entrepreneur, an ex-Googler, and a neuroscience student. I love bringing products to market that help people be happier and healthier.

I've always been fascinated by human consciousness and the biology of the mind. I believe the complex interactions in our brain shape our thoughts, memories, feelings and dreams, and ultimately make us human.

I'm half-French, half-Algerian. I was born in Paris, sold French wine in New York, studied in Tokyo, worked at Google in San Francisco, and started a company in London. I've been fortunate to be able to visit more than forty countries. My sister lives in South Korea, my little brother in Hungary, my big brother in Belgium. My parents got married at Burning Man two years ago.

Things I love to talk about: mental wellness in our modern age, new relationship models, marketing and consumer psychology, psychedelics in healthcare and society, productivity versus creativity, tech for good, science fiction.

Please get in touch if any of this sounds interesting to you, if you need help with anything related to the above topics, or if you have a good book to recommend.
