🤔About

Hi! Thanks for coming by.

Learning in public

That’s really the goal of this site. I’ve learned so much over the years from people sharing their thoughts & learnings online – I want to do the same. Not only may it help others, it helps me learn better through writing.

About me

I’m French but live in London, which I’ve called home for 20 years and counting.

I love the “day to day” work of defining, building, and taking to market new software products, which I was lucky to do as a product manager at Improbable for 4.5 years (building a cloud platform called SpatialOS to power the next generation of online games) and before that at a startup called Qubit. These were both very formative experiences in fast growing companies.

In early 2021 I spent about half my time on my DIY MBA, and the other half on reading, meeting people, and investing in crypto. That led me to a consulting project with Quine (NFTs for Github commit) and then with SkillZ (a staking as a service platform). I very quickly joined SkillZ full-time where I am now Chief Product Officer. I still try to move the MBA along evenings & weekends 🙂

Other than that I am very into running, playing tennis and football, kitesurfing, amorously watching anything by Norm MacDonald and Larry David, and sampling cheese & chutney.

Inspirations

Who do you read everything by?

(In other words – who are the authors you follow the most? It’s a great question that I heard on a podcast a few years ago – I forget who asked it… 😳)

Here’s a rough list of who I am reading everything by these days, which should give you an idea of the kinds of topics you’ll find on this blog:

  • Rory Sutherland
  • Gaspard Koenig
  • Albert Wenger
  • Nassim Taleb
  • Stewart Brand
  • Vitalik Buterin
  • Balaji Srinivasan
  • Ben Thompson
  • Bill Bishop

Hope you learn something interesting on here – don’t hesitate to leave a comment with your thoughts or suggestions.

Cheers ✌
