Jérôme grew up between the French suburbs and the Ariège mountains. After his Bac, he trained with Jehanne Laederich, the last master bookbinder in Paris, but soon realised that jobs repairing medieval manuscripts were thin on the ground. In 1994 he began working in sales and marketing for a publisher, then in 1998 he joined online art sales platform artface.com. In 2001, Jérôme worked on the launch of Novethic.fr, the first website dedicated to corporate social responsibility, and since then has been dedicated to evangelizing about these principles. In 2016 he sold his consulting company and spent the next 5 years developing Larfeuille, a project that links up his multiple experiences and passions.
