OR “HOW TO BUY WAY MORE BOOKS THAN YOU SHOULD”
My insatiable curiosity has led me to keep studying while designing and coding professionally. During the last decade, I've subsequently studied computer sciences, graphic design, arts, and interactivity in various schools in Canada, France and Australia.
OR “HOW TO GET THINGS DONE (BEFORE YESTERDAY)”
Having worked with both small startups and large agencies, I know what it takes for ideas to come to life. I have a hands-on approach to projects, and favour early prototyping to over-thinking every bit. I never really stop making stuff; I split most of my spare time between unusual experiments, a writing app startup, and artsy projects.
At one of their "hackathon", Google even rewarded my work with a 1st prize mention.
OR “THE ART OF SPREADSHEETS, SLIDESHOWS, CONFERENCE CALLS”
While I prefer creation to corporation, I do speak their language fluently. That means I'm used to leading meetings, preparing presentations, and managing a team efficiently. Best of all, I don't fear explaining CEOs and investors how our products add value (as long as it really does).
OR “THE OCCULT SCIENCE OF PROGRAMMERS”
I'm admittedly obsessed with technology and might have wasted more time than I should reading about the light spectrum, alternate database types, cognition, obscure html5 apis, and machine learning. On the other hand, using both sides of the brain let me understand precisely how websites and apps work under the hood. Working tightly with a dev team is not only efficient (Do you know many designers who can integrate, test, and publish their work using command line terminal?); it lets me better design around the technology, and consequently pull out smarter products.
OR “WHY ROBOTS DON'T MAKE GOOD TEAMMATES ”
While understanding business goals is important, understanding people is critical in achieving a successful company. While I sometimes produce entire projects alone, I really find myself at home within a team of highly qualified specialists. I believe exchanges between bright minds can only yield better results.
