Hello !

I am an interaction and graphic designer from France. I mostly deal with projects involving digital devices and new technologies. I recently focused my work on the game design area as I see games as an efficient way to encourage users' curiosity and motivation whilst they are being entertained. I have a background in graphic design and am specialized in making user interfaces and user experiences for websites and mobile applications. I am also curious about developing stories and I am self-taught in drawing and music composition.
