About me

I'm a front-end developer originally from Paris, that I escaped in 2006 to settle in Tokyo. After spending 10 years at Digitas and 5 years at Google, I'm giving a try at the indie life and shipping my own iOS apps.

– One of the first thing I coded was a Vs. fighting game rendered in ASCII and written in GW-BASIC, that I was playing with my friends during boring computer classes in junior high.
– When it was cool I betrayed the web to do Flash development, then came back 4 years later.
– I also worked for one of the biggest US dating sites.
– I was one of the organizers of the Tokyo Quiche Conferences, which had the particularity of having no presenter, just people coming to eat quiches and chatting loudly in French.
