Who are you?

I’m a software engineer, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve always knew what my passion was; I’ve started at the age of 3, playing Commander Keen 4 and Wolfenstein 3D over and over, and learning MS-DOS enough to boot those games. Since then my passion never changed; while other kids were playing football, I was learning Visual Basic. My best Christmas memory was when my dad brought home my first pair of PC audio speakers! After that there was no going back :-).

Can you tell us about the products you love?

I love when a product is intuitive enough that I don’t have to learn how to use it. If I can deduce how it works by only glancing at it, it’s a good product for me. If somehow it’s too complicated to understand, it’s the designer fault. Since my expectations are high in this matter, I plan to make my work, in particular in the Linkurious back-end, as intuitive as possible within my ability; both for team-mates and for the final user.

What do you expect to learn at Linkurious?

I want to boost my analytical skills. Gladly, I work with bright people; there’s nothing worse than being the smartest in the room. I hopefully will continue facing new problems and solving them for the most part; learning from the unresolved ones too. I’m also looking into improving my communication and leading skills; and learning French of course!

Which super hero or fictional character would you be?

I would be the Doctor of course! All that knowledge of space and time in my mind… may probably be too much; but for a chance to see what the universe hides, I would bear the burden :-).

What is one thing few people know about you?

I like to pick locks as a hobby; still an enthusiast, though.

What is your favourite music piece at the moment?
