A shortcut to know me

Only my father and my mother knew how many toys I dismantled to understand how they worked. Attracted by what can make me move faster, from skateboards to bicycles, I grow up with a motorbike and a wrench in hand.

As a teenager and already perfectionist, I acquired skills in photography and video editing as well as audio recording. Music is a big part of my life and at the age of 15 years old I played in a few bands as a lead singer/guitarist and composed my own songs. I also went a bit digital and composed jingles and music for Atari and Amiga video games. I participated in community projects and had an exciting political and militant life. I was involved in youth associations and had part in the creation of the French Federation of Angry Bikers. I also had my moment of glory in the romantic first days of the Pirate Radios move in the 80's Paris holding a microphone.

In 2003 I worked as CTO for a cutting edge security company in Israel related to Fortigate products.

I joined the Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware community, a full-featured, Open Source all-in-one Wiki and data management. Tiki Wiki is a very powerful web application I contribute in for several years. Today I'm one of the project's admins and if you want to know more, click here.

From 2004 to 2007 I acquired a wide knowledge on POS as IT Admin and ERP Admin and was responsible for a 6500 products catalog and 8 stores data systems provided by Retalix (subsidiary of NCR).

In 2007 I worked for a French/Israeli startup, Netineo specialized in video delivery on the Internet and mobiles as a project manager for Orange Europe R&D with the HomeLook project.
