Software Engineer

Motivated by solving problems, challenges and innovation, fond of new technologies. Interested in physics, litterature and neuroscience, I spend a lot of time reading. In my free time I play board games, drink beers, practice mountain hiking, play soccer, and experiment with technology.

IT interests/skills: Distributed systems, blockchain technology, software architecture, Golang, DevOps, modern JavaScript, large-scale systems, Cloud computing, and automation.

Active learner

The best way to learn is to practice. That's why I built tens of weekend projects and participated in hackathons to try out technologies and concepts, or to bring ideas to life.

Hobbies

Board games

With friends, we often play board and card games. Some of my favorite games are Dominion, Star Realms, Time’s Up and Cards against Humanity.

Bars & restaurants

I go out and eat or have a drink as often as possible: I really enjoy French gastronomy, and in particular that of the South-Western region.

Sports

I’ve always played collective sports, competitively and for fun: football, baseball, US football… I love to play Futsal from time to time.

Blockchain & cryptocurrencies

I am interested and involved in the blockchain technology. I am able to build applications running on the Ethereum blockchain using Solidity to build smart contracts and web3.js to connect front-end applications to the Ethereum network.

Travelling

I love discovering new regions, countries, cultures, languages and food. That’s why I visited several cities in France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the USA. I also moved from France to the UK and plan to move again to another country, such as the USA, Canada, Australia or Singapore.

The fresh air and sun are necessary to my well-being. I’ve been mountain hiking with my family since I was young.
