I am a French Industrial Designer based in London. I am interested in the study of human behaviours, culture and new technologies to inform product innovation.

I had the chance to work for SWBK Design in South Korea where I was involved in the development of consumer electronic products for global companies like Samsung. My experience at world-leading design agencies such as MAP, BarberOsgerby and Tangerine allowed me to work under design figures on a wide variety of projects, from transport design to fast consumer goods. As a personal project, I am currently collaborating with my friend Sherif on the design and manufacturing of a pen. Follow us on our blog projectpen.co.

I spent a year at Emotech as a Design Lead working on a personal robot called Olly. The product is still in development but you can check out the progress on heyolly.com

I recently took the position of Industrial Designer at Native Design, a consultancy with 20 years of expertise in creating products and experiences for the world's best companies.
