My name is Alain, a common French first name.
I was born and grew up in Paris, France. After completing my education and serving 2 ½ years in the French army, I immigrated to California in 1962. I worked in various roles for the Xerox Corporation for 35 years and retired in November 2001.
I am an animal fancier, a nature lover and I am fond of French food, humor, and “bons mots”. My present interests are writing (French and English), photography, pétanque, and French culture.
Thank you for your interest in my profile. Alain
