After a bad mountain biking accident, Romain decided he needed to reassess the life he had come to live. Born in a family of educators, Romain made the difficult decision of leaving school to pursue a journey worth living.
Since then, he spent years building a business doomed to fail, wrote a children’s book communicating climate to younger audiences and traveled the world with Unreasonable at Sea helping social entrepreneurs scale their business globally. He has also been passionate about helping students looking to make an impact discover their entrepreneurial journey and started a student run incubator in collaboration with Unreasonable at Sea.
He’s journeyed to the Saharan desert to live with desert nomads and has spent some time homeless in the streets of Scandinavia in order to test the dogma that “need is the mother of all invention.” Recently, Romain decided to finish his degree at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He now teaches and acts as the Vice President of Watson University in Boulder Colorado.
