Quotes for myself

Article writing 2018

Diderot by Louis-Michel van Loo

Collection of quotes that have resonated with me. The Quotes for myself will give you an insight into the origins of my readings and inspirations.


Essay writing 2018

Reflexio project

The writing of Reflexio, and more specifically, the Essay on the interpretation of being by analogy with the machine. It aims to combines two topics important for me: computer science and philosophy.

Shut Up & Write!® Munich

Event management January 2019 - Present

Shut Up & Write!® Munich group

Hosting weekly writing meetups within the framework of Shut Up & Write!®. We meet in a café to work on our personal projects: writing novel, essay, thesis but also reading or drawing. I am delighted to see so many people interested in this kind of creative process. Pass by if you are around, you will meet amazing folks!



Founder December 2021 - Present

Moving back to live in France to devote myself entirely to the development of an open source project. As computer scientists, we work with them on a daily basis. In fact, many systems in the world would become obsolete overnight if they were to disappear.

This motivation led me today to work on Nacre, an intuitive shell. A way for me to combine two passions (software & ergonomics) and thus to thank at my level what this fabulous open source community gives us.

Airbus Defence and Space

DevOps Mars 2019 - February 2021

End of studies internship at Airbus Defence and Space (Munich). Mostly work on the setup and implementation of new virtual environments for the Mission Operation Center of Space Data Highway programme.

I later moved to a DevOps position in May 2019 under the Digital Transformation Office. I am proud to be today part of the Tribe which implements the Private Cloud of Airbus D&S.


Internship Septembre 2016 - January 2017

Intern at enioka, a small consulting company based in Paris. The subject of my work was the Service Levels in Hybrid Cloud Environments. Since then, much water has flowed under the bridge, and I wouldn't quite agree with myself anymore, but this experience introduced me to the key elements of infrastructure monitoring, which later sparked my interest in DevOps culture.



Engineering degree - Information System and Software Engineering 2018

After finishing my bachelor degree at Paris Descartes University, I decided to continue my studies at EPITA, an engineering school specialized in computer science. Probably one of the most challenging moments of my life.

I chose systems architecture as my speciality for the last year of my engineering studies. I have strengthened my knowledge in this field through projects focusing on architecture, infrastructure and virtualization in conjonction with softskills such as presenting, communication, persuasion and leadership.

  • These books [of Sthal and Newton] were just waiting to be heard, to be valued for what they were worth; and it would not have cost their authors more than a month to make them clear; that month would have spared three years of labor and exhaustion to a thousand good spirits.

    Denis Diderot — Pensées sur l’interprétation de la nature (1754)
  • If you kept the small rules you could break the big ones.

    George Orwell, 1984

  • Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

  • Learning to write clean code is hard work. It requires more than just the knowledge of principles and patterns. You must sweat over it. You must practice it yourself, and watch yourself fail.
