Welcome to my web site

I live in Brussels, the Capital of Belgium and of Europe, and I work as a chemical engineer at the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC). You will find more about me here!

From 1993 to 1998, I was living in Ferney-Voltaire (France, near the Swiss border) and I worked for the United Nations in Geneva (Switzerland). The city of Ferney-Voltaire didn't have a web site: I therefore developed a guide to this city. I have also created one for a French village that bears my name: Orban, near Albi (Tarn), and for a Spanish village with the same name: Orban in Galicia.

One of my hobbies is aviation, and particularly commercial airliners. Another hobby of mine is photography. Finally, I am interested in the roots of my family and in the etymology of my surname.

Owing to all my centres of interest, my site has 7 main parts:

I also invite you to see my wife's website, Teresa's Home Page, which contains a large section on her maiden name Stepien

Another page lists my favourite links in fields not related to the ones above.

And finally, you are invited to post to my blog.
