Cédric Henri Roserens was born in Martigny, Valais, Switzerland, in 1974. Too late to be James Cook and explore the infinite waters of the Pacific Ocean. Too early to be James T. Kirk and explore the infinite paths of our Galaxy. In 1999, he earned a Master of Arts degree from the University of Lausanne in computer science and geography. His travel experiences are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for his books.
