I’m a computer scientist, intensely interested in computer security and privacy. I strive to dedicate a significant portion of my life to contributing to open-source software. I appreciate the art of computer programming since my childhood.

During the day, I work in the field of information security as part of a Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT), where I have the chance to work on exciting projects and assist with incident response alongside this awesome team.
Here is a resume if you care.

Outside of computers, I’m interested in photography. As far back as I can remember, I have always had an affection for photography. I received my first camera when I was 8 years old. I play piano, a lot. I also read books, but not as much as I would like.

More about me

It’s all about open source

I contribute to various open-source projects mainly, but not only, in the infosec field. I also develop open-source software in a professional context. I do not really prefer a specific programming language, despite the fact that I enjoy using Python and OCaml.

I think it’s also important to make donations to the projects I am relying on.

I am desperate by the growing capitalist alternative of the Web and I support the Small Web.


I’m a minimalist and a low-tech guy. Secretly I do not like modern technology. I like books, pen, papers and photos. I hate e-readers and “smart” devices. Of all the things I own, the most important for me is probably my piano.

This principle is also valid when it comes to my tastes in software development and with hardware. My favorite programming languages are Python and OCaml and text editors of choice are Emacs and Kate, depending on the project and my mood.


I do not want to depend on big tech companies, I avoid online services, the cloud and try to run what I can myself. Or partly myself.

I also do not want to depend to much on the banking system (I avoid having debts), and useless insurances. I hate subscription services because I want to spend most of my time creating and thinking. Not consuming products. Our world do not need more audience, but more creation.


I might have already said it: I love my piano. An instrument of music is the only expensive thing you can buy and do not feel stupid. It works without electricity, without subscription, without software. It just needs you and you can enjoy it your entire life. To be good at it you need to learn and practice. The rich can’t buy this. Lazy people can’t steal it. You can use it alone, in duo or being part of a group.


I am a kind of introvert and I like to think, slowly, about many aspects of the world. However, I am very comfortable when I am surrounded by people, for example, at conferences. I don’t feel the need to show, to be liked and I ignore those who don’t like me.

I make friends quite easily. I remember and still love all of them. I am fine when I am alone, so I know I have the best friends.

I do not fight against people with antagonist principles. Trying to fix the society this way is a waste of time. It’s extremely hard to change people. I think that it’s better to spend time for positive things, to create and enjoy your transient life. You could be an example, just by doing. And at worse, you did something.

People should be more individualist and altruistic, in the same time. It’s a matter of balance.


Despite my work and passion for computer science, I do my best to spend a lot of time with them. Which can be chalenging nowadays. I try to teach them everything I can and of course to have fun together.

It’s fine if it’s hard

I always valued efforts. Even when I was a teenager (a bit weird no ?). Later when I was at the university. Today I tend as well to specifically value more what has endured. A watch that you are using since 10 years will be probably ready for another decade. Same for cars, I do not change a working car. Do not buy a brand new camera but try to make great photos with your current equipment. Look for new ideas, techniques, skills, new places. It’s more work but rewarding.

Hard effort is good for the body. Discomfort makes you stronger. Comfort makes you age faster. I really started doing more sport when I was 32. I quickly felt stronger than at the age of 20.

Reading books is good for you. Big companies do not forget to remind us to finish a movie, watch a video, read Twitter. Who remind you to read books ?

Thanks to books you will keep the brain of a child. If you are constantly learning, you do not age.


I always tried to do everything with passion and I think long-term. As much in my private life as in my work. If I feel that something out of my control is about to threaten my plans, I am ready to take appropriate decisions to change this or to adjust the plan. Most of the time it’s not easy, but it’s necessary. It’s always better to put more effort. This is how to be honest and respectful to others.

Finally, it’s about enjoying life and doing what you love.
