About Me

I’m a product manager based in Paris, France. I am passionate about solving customer problems with cutting-edge technologies. I am operating at the intersection of product innovation and business development. I am a quick learner who enjoys new challenges as well as being a competent person with a high level of perseverance. I have worked for both start-ups and multinational companies in China, Argentina, France and the UK.

Product Management

I am working across multiple functional areas (design, engineering, data, sales, marketing, communications, customer support) to deliver technology-powered products that solve real customers problems in a way that meets the needs of the business.

I am constantly balancing strategic thinking with pragmatic operational execution - defining, prioritizing and executing product roadmaps from ideation to launch. I am both user-focused (keeping the customer at the heart of everything I do) and data-driven (relying on facts rather than opinions to make decisions). I am an open-minded team player with excellent communication skills with fluent proficiency in English, Spanish and French.

Software Engineering

I'm an advanced python developer, highly skilled in workflow automation and data analysis. I have built back-end algorithms and python libraries tailored for every stage of an Internet of Things device lifecycle (R&D, design, manufacturing, customer support, maintenance).

I took multiple online courses in machine learning. Although my interest in artificial intelligence was initially a scientific curiosity, I soon found creative ways to apply AI to my work. On the side of my full time job, I have launched my one-person company in 2019. I'm helping SMEs to automate business processes by harnessing the full potential of the latest digital technologies.

Hardware Manufacturing

I graduated from Arts et Métiers (ENSAM), a French engineering school that provides an in-depth knowledge of engineering concepts that are particularly well suited to designing products and production systems.

At Plume Labs, I had the unique opportunity to prototype, design and industrialize an IoT device from scratch, being the first full time engineer hired in the company. Today the device is mass-produced and commercially available worldwide. Throughout the development process I have collaborated with international partners, such as the world renowned design agency Frog, a Chinese manufacturing partner and a myriad of asian  suppliers.
