About Me


discovering new forms of life...


I am a natural born engineer. I am very interested in art, especially electronic/digital arts. This year I decided to follow my dream and quit my job and set up a startup business on electronics. We will see if I will be able to survive.

I am usually work a lot during the week days. But as long as I have time, I can show you around.


Follow your own path.

I never forget : there are two kind of people who are happy; one doesn't know himself nor the world, the other one knows the good and bad absolutely. (Omer Hayyam)
