Born in 1977, Yann is an engineer graduated from the École Polytechnique in France, with a PhD in the field of Ecology. His thesis was on the dynamics of carbon and nitrogen fluxes in agro-ecosystems. He later focused his work on the understanding of urban dynamics and interactions between city and transport. He has 25 years of experience in land use, transport and urban planning.

Since 2004, Yann has provided consulting services and expertise to public and private contracting authorities for different types of projects involving questions of spatial organization and people flow. His projects cover all scales: country, city and building.

Based in The Hague since 2012, he founded ORYZHOM there. In 2020, he began research work in the archives of The Hague with the aim of establishing the catalog raisonné of the works designed and built by the architect H.J. Dammerman Jr. (1873-1922). In 2021, he decided to publish his work on the occasion of the centenary of the architect's death and thus embarked on an editorial project. ORYZHOM publishing was born. The first works has been released in November 2022.

Since the publication of the books on Dammerman, Yann has become interested in another little-known Statenkwartier architect: the architect and industrialist Hendrik van Wort (1860-1923), director of the Rotterdam furniture factory C.H. Eckhart from 1913 to 1923.
