I believe in an inclusive and accessible web. I do my part by translating designs into responsive, interactive and performant pages with clean and semantic code.

For the past years, I've worked in both startups and software houses, building and maintaining complex applications. I've gained experience in various stacks, but I love and I am most involved in Javascript's ecosystem.

Currently, I'm working as a Senior Front-end Developer at Causaly.
