Hi! ☺ With this page, for once, I don't want to prove anything but just share some of my interests and thoughts.
It's a work in progress, of course.

Circa 2003

I "played" Pierrick Calvez's Days in a Day, a kind of visual adventure in Flash. I realized that I wanted to work in the web.


I started copying (badly) what others were doing on the web.


I came across the work of people who have inspired me a lot to form ideas about design and the web: Jeffrey Zeldman, Jason Santa Maria, Shaun Inmann, Jeremy Keith, Ethan Marcotte. And then Paul Jarvis, Valerio Proietti, Lea Verou, Chris Coyier, Tim Van Damme, Sara Soueidan and many others.

I first heard about Ruby on Rails, and after a few years about Laravel.


I co-founded Iperstudio, a tiny collective of developers and designers. Iperstudio still exists after 10 years (and a hundred projects).


Flex is an established reality, and the first grid drafts are making their way in. I get hooked on CSS.


I keep testing (for work and for fun) various JS libraries and frameworks: Next.js, Nuxt, Sveltekit, Remix. None of them convinces me 100%.
