Olivier, entrepreneur, deaf

Born in Los Angeles, California, he lost his hearing at age 2. When Olivier arrived in France after his studies at UC Berkeley, he was taken aback by the lack of accessibility for hard-of-hearing people. With the advent of Siri in 2011 he realized that if every smartphone could automatically caption conversations, he could call like everyone else.

That's how Rogervoice came about! Our mission? Break down barriers to communication every day.🚀

Julien Verniers-Grange

French sign language Interpreter

I started my career as a carpenter, then as a recreation centre animator, then as a caregiver, then as a mime actor, then ... as an interpreter for nearly 10 years. I am happy to work with Rogervoice within a kind and welcoming professional environment.

Fabien Lafond

French sign language Interpreter

I’ve been an interpreter since 1999. That’s right, I’m from another century, a baby dinosaur. I’ve been working in interpreter services since the beginning, and it’s with much joy that I’ve joined the Rogervoice adventure to live new experiences with the deaf community. I hope to travel freely again to faraway places, and for now I’m enjoying our local countryside.

Eva Rogow

COO

Rogervoice was an obvious choice ! After more than 20 years of a multifaceted career at multinationals and smaller companies, and more recently as director of AIDES, joining a project with a social impact like Rogervoice made sense. I keep being involved for associations (ESCP Alumni, SPILE, C'Possible, Make-A-Wish France) or working on my next creation or giving a course. 😉

Forza Rogervoice!
