I am passionate about innovation and new products, especially mobile ones. I am currently leading product for Quik acquired by GoPro.
I attended the Ecole Polytechnique majoring in Economics and Physics and moved to Stanford to complete a master in Materials Science. At Stanford, experimenting with startup ideas, I learnt to program on iPhone and attended Stanford Ignite, an intensive program from the Business School to teach entrepreneurship to engineers. Moving back to France, I started a first company, As-App, creating the first mobile apps for ski resorts which became used by 50+ ski resorts across Europe and Americas. I sold these apps to my business partner, Lumiplan, and moved forward to start HeyCrowd with Emmanuel Bellity. HeyCrowd is a platform to make surveys more transparent, mobile and social. HeyCrowd collected one million votes per day across Europe and the US. I joined Stupeflix in the summer of 2014 to lead the product (and some swift) for on the Replay app, the most powerful and smartest video editor mobile. In 2016, GoPro acquired Stupeflix and Replay.
In my free time, I love giving back to entrepreneurs, I started a monthly meetup at the Ecole Polytechnique, which brings entrepreneurs on campus to share their experience. It's called Startup café and the goal is to make entrepreneurship look more accessible to engineering students. I am also currently a Mentor at the Ecole Polytechnique for Entrepreneurship classes
I also enjoy skydiving, tennis and running and I am in love with Brazil
