I was born in 1992 and grew up in Le Mans in France.

I moved to New York when I was 20 to found an art company called Gertrude with Kenneth Schlenker and Astrid De Maismont. We gathered a global, art-collecting community and hosted 200+ events around the world in 2 years.

The three of us then founded ArtList (acq. by artnet), which became the leading online marketplace for private art sales ($100m worth of artwork listed).

In my spare time I've also been known to deconstruct the logic behind social media platforms. While part of the ArtList team, I reversed engineered the Instagram API to build a bot. It got to $5k MRR (read about it on Indiehackers) and took ArtList to 100k followers on Instagram within 8 months.

As much as I love software, I also enjoy designing and building physical objects. I was particularly inspired after reading The Best Interface is No Interface several years ago and built a responsive, no-interface lamp: Mado.
