Acer Cloud Technology US

Engineering Manager


I managed a team developing a scalable, Docker-based platform in collaboration with the R&D and IoT product teams in Taipei to bring to market the Internet of Beings, a set of vertical solutions associating IoT devices and cloud-based solutions.


Chief Architect


I invented and brought to market a new way to build powerful business applications, removing the cost of dedicated development and traditional vendor lock-in. Architected and implemented a complete software suite encompassing a native client, a multi-tenant application development environment and a revolutionary, modern, scalable runtime.


Chief Architect


I co-invented and architected Intalio|Create, a new generation rapid application development platform. It radically changes the landscape of modern business applications development by focusing on collaborative experiences of people in unstructured environments, while removing the unnecessary burden of typical hard coded, inflexible logic.


Université de Technologie de Troyes, France

Master Computer Science

2001 - 2006

This university picks up right after the SAT equivalent in France, and offers two years of common studies for all engineers.

This is followed by three years of specialization in a discipline of engineering. Notably, Software development was not offered as my teachers were sure offshore development would be the main trend for the French software market.

We instead studied further how to manage a complete informations system, from its requirements, its organization and its change management.

I hold a master in Software Integration, Knowledge Management and Organizations Science.

Armed with expert knowledge of UML, I joined a small startup in Paris where I started as an Eclipse developer for their UML edition product.

Humboldt State University, California

Exchange program


As part of a 6 month computer science exchange program, I discovered America and American campus life.

I worked closely with the teaching staff, taking on a lab assistant role for the C++ course.

I learned Perl and explored beautiful Arcata. I loved it.

A Little More About Me

I live in Silicon Valley, California, where life is sweet and kids grow happy.

Besides software engineering, I play board games, dabble in 3D printing and organize excursions for my cub scout.
