I am a french video game developer, currently working in the indie game studio DSC Studio22. I started as a developer and now I am also in charge of the production of small mobile video games. We are now working on our biggest project so far : Energy Heroes which will be playable on PC. In short, I am very much involved into indie gaming. I am also working on a few spare time projects on my own.
My experience in the video game industry is quite varied, though I never worked in a big company. I worked on flash games, on serious games for the french army, on mobile games, and lately on more serious desktop games. My ultimate goal is to achieve "the One": the video game that will be a breakthrough in the way video games offer an interactive story and amazing game mechanics, just like Half-Life or Dune did in their days. But for the moment... well, I'm a grunt !
I am addicted to heavy metal. I attend a lot of concerts and festivals. I like to share my passion for this subversive music genre which allowed me to meet a lot of amazing people. This type of music has always been a good way for me to develop my spirituality... and I think spirituality is something really important in our world. Christian, muslim, jew, buddhist : I don't care who you are, as long as you know we are so small in this universe.
I am also interested in ufology, cats and military history. I am a big fan of Australia, I travelled there and I always like to discover new countries.
