Hi, I’m Thierry! History has been my passion since I was a teenager. My purpose is to share my knowledge in a way that is entertaining and easy to understand. For years, I have taken people and friends to places in Paris where major events took place or great historical figures lived. Having spent 17 years in the US and the UK gives me the hindsight to approach historical events with different perspectives, along with a knowledge drawn from a lifetime of attending history talks, courses, tours and reading hundreds of books. So come time travel with me on my historic walks on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris, the French Revolution, Napoleon the Great and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!
