Occupations, other than computer stuff


I’ve been a viola player for the past 14 years. I also played during 4 years with the Symphonic Youth Orchestra of Strasbourgfr, an associative orchestra. We went on tour around France, but also in China, Croatia and the United States.

I also have been learning the guitar on my own for 4 years.


I’ve been a member of the Prologin organization since 2018. To paraphrase our website, its goal is to introduce young students to the world of programming and algorithms, by subjecting them to several conventional problems and exciting challenges.


I was the president of the Bureau Des Étudiants (Student Desk) during my first two years at EPITA. It basically meant organizing events, such as trivia nights, barbecues, parties…, for the students. It taught me a lot about team management, treasury, and communication with people.
