My portrait

I am a developer with seven years' experience working with various web technologies. Passionate about bringing products to life, I know a coherent user experience doesn't live solely in code, so I have also worked on UI and UX design for the past four years.

More than that, I am a learner who never shies away from the unknown if it can benefit the product. I am fluent in French (native) English and German, and I understand Spanish.
