About Me

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”Pablo Picasso

I’m a design hacker who fights against poorly designed products. I design, code, brew beer, ride motorcycle and bake overly sweet cakes for my kids.

I’m currently leading the product design team for Monitise in San francisco, designing the next generation of mobile banking applications.

UX / UI Design

I’m a self taught interface designer currently leading the product design team at Monitise to create the next generation of mobile banking applications.

I designed for Phone, tablet and wearable (apple & android watches, google glasses…).

You can check my design process here.

Being a passionate designer, I don’t limit myself to digital interfaces. For instance, I’m designing physical devices like Relief for Red Eyed Frog, which will change the way blind people interact with digital content.

Graphic Design & Branding

I’m an Illustrator and Photoshop ninja, I’ve been playing with the creative suite for the past 15 years.

I learned marketing and branding in college and while studying at IPAC for my master degree, I founded Opale Communication to help small businesses built strong and efficient brand identity through logo, website and many other mediums.

Front End Development

I’m very curious and I often need to know how and why things work the way they do. I was first introduce to HTML while running Opale Communication back in 2005 and I’ve been experimenting with HTML and CSS ever since.

In my current position at Monitise, I am involved in the code review to improve code re-usability and implement industry best standards in the way we use HTML, and CSS preprocessor.

I know that purple is not a color.

I feel physical pain when I see a 2px misalignment.
For me, if it is done on a computer it should be pixel perfect.

Front end development

I know who Petyr Baelish is and how to use pseudo elements.

I customized my terminal and don’t use a graphic interface to commit my changes.
