I've created this website for you to see and understand what I can do.
If my curriculum was boring, what you would know so far is that I'm just another editor / translator. But it is not and I think that if you made it to this part, you think the same.
As far as I can remember, I've always been into design and new technologies. As a kid I loved drawing and art in general but as I grew, school made me forget about this and slowly dive into literature. When I graduated from Literature in high school I took the time to chose what I would study in college very carefully... And I failed. I first picked a degree that wasn't really for me.
After a year of not having the courage to switch from this degree to another one, I eventually decided what I would do with my life. I would study... Literature. In English. This was arguably the best decision I've took this year, the other major decision was to give up on my driving license because Theory was oh so boring, and also : money.
This gave me the time to focus on books and arts in general, and it made me also pick very carefully this time, a minor that would instantly become a passion. The minor is called : "Media, culture and information". Studying the internet culture, films, new medias and learning the basis of journalism was for me really revealing. I had found what I wanted to do with my life.
This is when I decided to enter a journalism school. The school I entered is in Paris, but I didn't stay there long. After 4 months, all of the student had to take internships. That's when my first client hired me. From then, I had the confidence and the skills required to work, and quit school. "
