Welcome!

Welcome to my website!

As you can see, it's pretty simple. I don't want to bloat it with lots and lots of information.
The main goal behind this website is to allow anyone who whould be interesting in who I am, to, well, know more about me, what I do, what I did, what I want to do, etc.

Who am I?

I am a Software Engineer, originally from France. I studied at Epitech, and I am currently working for Skype.

Challenges
Over the course of my studies and career, I have noticed that I am very motivated by challenges.
I can work on any sort of project, but when I am faced with a challenging project, I actually become more and more driven, and determinated to see the task/project to completion.

New technologies — Building the future
I have always been interested in new technologies.
I love using the tools that we have now, but when new tools/languages/technologies come around, they pique my interest.
I also really like to think that those new technologies are what build the future. I want to know that I am amongst the builders of what the world of technology will look like tomorrow.
Innovation, revolution... Both of them are full of challenges, and that is why I like them!

Curiosity
I do not like to not know. Some friends would tell me it's a bit annoying sometimes.
But I am very curious, and I like to understand what I am reading or talking about. I can spend a lot of time on Google or Wikipedia, reading articles for hours...
I think it is also what allows me to learn quickly and well, as I can go very deep into my need for understanding.

What do I do?

Programming
As a Software Engineer, I obviously do a lot of programming.
I currently specialise in Objective-C, C and C++, to write OSX/iOS apps and command line tools.
As an avid Mac user, most of what I do is definitely OSX oriented. I am, however, very open to discovering any other languages (such as Java) that is needed.
I consider myself a quick learner, and given time and opportunity, I will gladly learn any language or technology relevant to my projects.

User experience
As most developers, I have very little visual design skills.
However, I like to think that whatever I do, I have the end-users in mind. I do consider that a well maintained code is primordial, but I also think that the user experience of every project needs to be at the centre of every decision. Beautiful code is not enough to make an application great.

Volunteering
Before knowing that I wanted to be a Software Engineer, I wanted to do something that would allow me to help other people. I have often been tempted by medical studies, as the human body is another fascination of mine, but the computers won my heart.

However, I still have the need to help others.
Which is why I joined St John Ambulance as a First Aider, where I quickly became an Advanced First Aider (capable of delivering medical gases).
Within my St John unit, I have been responsible for St John Cadets (under 18s), and I am currently responsible for Adult Training, organising and delivering First Aid training sessions.
On a regular basis, I will be providing First Aid to the public during varied events, ranging from big ones (London Marathon, New Year's Eve, Hyde Park Concerts, Chelsea football matches, etc.) to smaller, local ones (Regent Street festivals, London Fittest Firefighters, etc.).

Volunteering for St John Ambulance has been a great opportunity for me, knowing that I am able to help people get better!

Photography
I am not professional, but I do enjoy photography. Whenever I go to someplace that is not part of my everyday life, I try to take my camera with me, and capture what I feel with my camera.
You can find some of my photos on 500px or Flickr.

Where am I?

Geographically
I am currently living in London, where I work at Skype.
