French award-winning designer currently working at Snap Inc. in Los Angeles, CA. I've been designing different type of internet stuff, from controversial experiments to world-class consumer products. Scroll down to check out my journey.
I recently joined the Design team at Snap. A small pioneer team with modern values Iโ€™ve always believed in. Iโ€™m honored to contribute to the mission of empowering people to live in the moment.
2 continents. 3 cities. 4 houses. 15 people. 4 products. 1 family. Tribe was a series of social experiments backed by Sequoia Capital and KPCB. A messaging app, a calling app and a gaming app.

We gathered +7,800 upvotes on Product Hunt, been awarded several times from worldwide Institutions and featured in prestigious publications.
A Quest Called Tribe
SIDE HUSTLES
I've released a bunch of side projects. From an ironic fan brand inspired by Balenciaga (1,2,3), the missing "Explore" section of Snapchat, or Collectible Cards on the Ethereum network. The one that blew up the most though was a controversial email-based app called Leak (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15). During my freelancing days I built an iPad app of a suite ย of innovative tools for the fashion industry and - among others - a picture messaging app backed by Diddy, Nicki Minaj, and Jerome Jarre.
LO
ST
I have a Master Degree in Finance. I've never studied Design at school. During my College years, I created a bunch of Tumblrs (1,2) receiving 100,000+ visits, curated a newsletter of torrent links called Le Video Club (RIP), made merch for several French Colleges (1), interned at Leetchi - the "Hottest Startup #1 in Paris (Wired)" and also created my first social app ย (1,2,3).
Just
a kid
Born and raised in Paris, France. I started designing at 16 on a cracked version of Photoshop CS2. My first gigs were terrible logos & websites for my Counter Strike friends. AIM, MSN or mIRC. The early days of remote work.
DMs are opened on Twitter and Telegram. I can do email too. Love. Updated on Dec 29th.
