Gaspard Lorthiois, the english translator!

30/09/2016

 

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always wanted to help others do what they were doing. Three decades later, life has taught me that that was exactly what brings the greatest joy – so I’m keeping it up!

 

My name is Gaspard Lorthiois, I’m 38 years old, and, like Julien, I also spent time in the Philippines as a volunteer, doing my best so that others could do their best, too. I was trained as an engineer, I had worked in woodworking, solar panels and even aircraft manufacturing, so I thought I was bound to share at least something… and I’m the one who came out transformed! I discovered that doing to get things done is hollow, but that all the good stuff is in doing “together”!

Happily wed over there with the most beautiful person in the country – the most generous, too! – we moved to France about a year ago, in Nantes. I like weaving words and clowning around with kids, so my wife and I teach English to indigenous native children. I now earn a living as a translator so that I can take breaks whenever I feel like it to be with those I love. Each break gives me a chance to try to implement one of Julien’s actions… at the very least I succeed in getting it translated!
