I’m passionate about the web since my first Aol CD. As an autodidact, I started by doing some small experiments and quickly got involved with WebDesign. When I got into the University of Fribourg, I studied geology and computer science, after that I completed the Procom course. I now work as a consultant for DuckDuckGo and I work as a freelance UI Designer/FrontEnd Developer the rest of the time.

I am always looking for new challenges. I want to work with enthusiasts and have the opportunity to imagine a different web! With that idea in mind, I decided to co-found auwää studio with Marie Sahy to play with some pixels. And there’s more coming soon. Stay tuned ; )
