Educational Background

B.A. International Relations University of British Columbia, 2018

M.A. International Affairs King’s College London, 2021


Originally from France, Flavien has spent most of his time living abroad in countries such as Japan, Australia and Qatar. These experiences have forged a strong interest in making students be able to explore our big blue planet, and experience something new that challenges their assumption about the world and learn more about other people of different backgrounds. Flavien is a graduate of the University of British Columbia where he also worked at the UBC International Office before moving to Calgary.

Flavien is an avid outdoors and soccer fan. You will most likely find him either hiking a new mountain in the summer months, and skiing in winter or watching a soccer game on his time off.

Languages spoken: French & English
