I'm currently a principal developer at the IC. I have first worked with the IC in 2014 and joined full-time in 2018.
I like building useful and good-looking applications and websites. I therefore always focus first on User eXperience (UX). It's better when things actually work and are maintainable (for the customers and the team sanity) so I truly like clean-code and automated testing. Nothing beats Test Driven Development in my opinion.
Before joining the IC, I've worked for several digital agencies including Digital Eskimo and Piran Digital. I was also a freelancer for two years.
I grew up and mainly studied in France. I've been living in Australia for 13+ years. I've also spent over a year in Wales (via Erasmus) and another one in Japan (ultimate nerd sabbatical).
I have studied computer science and project-management. My latest degree is an IT engineering master from l'IG2I (a department of Centrale Lille).
