I have loved art since childhood.
I was also very good at mathematics.
So in my very young and naive little Franky head.
Drawing + Maths = Architecture.
I’ve lost 3 years of my life in college because of that.

I dropped architecture 1 week before it even started.
Then roamed the streets in search of a job, and an identity.
Enlightenment came in Industrial Design form. Which i studied for 3 years in college.
That is also where i learned the basics of Photoshop : mostly the magic wand, and “create new layer”.

I now have 10 years of experience under my belt, working fulltime with the creative minds at Precicad. And through the magic of self teaching, i also do graphic design, websites, logos, and all things digital.
Oh and i also train very hard to be a ninja. I love craft beer.
I still haven’t figured out how to use a Wacom.
And i speak french daily.

[text_dropcap]I[/text_dropcap]‘ve been designing products for a variety of clients since 2004. I can go from plastic to aluminum in a mouse click, modeling my way through objects of any sizes. Whether you prefer injection, roll casting or extrusions, I’ll make damn sure your idea’s journey from paper to store shelves is safe and sound.

[text_dropcap]E[/text_dropcap]ntirely self taught in the subtle art of web creation, I’ve been pushing pixels on a screen since the dark ages of the interwebs. It was a time when Netscape and Altavista ruled the online world. Nowadays, i happily apply CSS classes to HTML semantics within the confines of the best CMS this side of Google. WordPress is a way of life.

[text_dropcap]F[/text_dropcap]rom the tender age of 8 up to my young adult life, I probably drew around 6 hours a day. Non stop. I basically had a pencil shape imprited into my finger tips. The result are a neverending love of paper, impulsive purchases of sketchbooks and the talent to draw tattoos, comics and naked ladies with ease and style.
