Senior Program Manager
I grew up in the suburbs of beautiful Paris where I enjoyed a happy, nerdy childhood. At age 10, I got my first computer, a TI-99/4A. Two years later, I self-published my first video game, and sold thousands of copies. This is about the time when I met Fabien, the beginning of a lifelong friendship. Together, we built an ambitious adventure game on the Atari 800XL.
At age 20, I got accepted at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon where I studied physics and mathematics and then got myself a PhD in Mathematical Physics (my thesis title was "Ternary Algebraic Structures"). After that, I decided that I had understood all the mysteries of the world (joking). Wanting to go back to computer stuff, I joined a small web agency where I built what was probably the first CMS based on the nascent .NET platform.
Microsoft recruited me shortly after that and moved me and my family across the Atlantic to work on building the next version of ASP.NET. During the eight years I spent there, I evangelized for the Open Source philosophy, participated in the adoption of jQuery and founded the effort to develop the Orchard CMS.
In 2011, I co-founded Nwazet with Fabien, with the goal of freeing our imaginations and materializing our ideas in alignment with our convictions about openness.
