About Me
I'm a French Product Owner with IT engineering background living in Netherland.
I have a strong analytic mindset that allows me to apply the same scientific rigour in every part of my job : from analyzing needs and systems, defining a product vision based on fact and KPI, designing features and setting a roadmap.
What's more, I'm a true team player and strong believer in collective intelligence. I love to facilitate continuous improvement processes and set up the framework and organize tasks in a rational and pragmatic way in collaboration with my teammates or stakeholders. As a consequence I naturally became product owner and then project manager.

I'm a servant for my teammates and fulfill myself in collaborative environment, putting hands on projects and designing user-oriented solutions.
