About me

'It is by forging that one becomes a blacksmith'.
-- French proverb

My main expertise is Frontend Design and Development. The last 5 years, I have designed UI and developed features for the main 3D map viewer of Esri. One of my major achievments, was the complete architecture of the application with a modern and sustainable structure without making any breaking changes for our users.

I am known to care a lot about my colleagues, create a strong team spirit and infuse a lot of positive energy in the workplace.

I grew up in a tiny swiss village in the mountains. Like craftsmen of my village, I learnt my craft by doing, day by day, night by night, while my education gave me the structure to grow. A passion were born! I became a “websmith”.

Since then, I have worked alone, carrying customer projects from A to Z. I've joined one of the largest IT company's strategic department for which I learnt to extract actionable information from large data sets to present it for decision takers. I've learnt to build quickly large scale prototype as proof of concept, as well deliver polished visuals for large audience.

About me

Hobby

If I don't have a rugby match during the weekend, you will probably not see me. I seek solitude in remote mountains, weither it's while running, while mountainering or rock climbing [more]. Sometimes I paint, sometimes I photograph.
What about the blacksmith theme? When I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a blacksmith. In my backyard, alone, I was hitting piece of bright yellow-orange wrought iron to create beautiful shapes. Today, behing my screen, I am hitting the keys of my computer to bend line of codes to create beautiul interfaces. I became a websmith.
