I have been working over 10 years with a B2B agency as a print and interactive art director and front-end developer. I work on manufacturing, showcase and media websites, as well as email marketing and interactive multimedia.

I find inspiration in every kind of designs or compositions to create creative and unique projects to shape people's opinion and perception. Concerned about details, I like thinking about the animations and interactions, supported by front-end development and UX design skills.

I like improving my workflows and testing new tools. I work in a clean environment using Adobe and (learning) Sketch for design and (learning) implementation of Gulp/Git for development.

At the end, I like taking part in meaningful projects offering help, information and an enjoyable experience for the users. I have a simple mission: To produce the highest quality work for every client, on every project.

I am currently working at dgs Marketing Engineers.

When I’m not at work, I love creating experiences with my family. I want to direct my energy into something long-lasting. I am a knowledge-seeker; if I don't know something, I search for answers. If you've got an exciting project, let's work together.
