My work


I’m a nimble and deep generalist who isn’t scared to get creative, strategic or tactical. I’m very good at finding elegant solutions that consider design, business and technology (and accessibility). I am fluent in French and in English.

My 12 years of experience are complemented by studies. I have a Masters in Digital transformation and innovation with a concentration in UX design, and a Bachelor of commerce with honours in marketing.

I understand the value of insight over data, how to make content scale, that efforts can lead to value, that users are humans, and how to pave the path from ideas to fruition. I have a particularly strong attention to detail, can convey vision, and adapt quickly.

Design style preferences:

  • Clear
  • Logical
  • Effective
  • Scalable
  • Usable
  • Autonomous

Writing style preferences:

  • Contextual
  • Flexible
  • Sentence case
  • Oxford comma (English)
