My background:

I was born in France and began my career in the creative print advertising industry, working on promotional and marketing collateral. I moved to the United States in the mid-nineties and began developing interactive and multimedia applications.

As my focus shifted to web-based media, I worked on several web sites and applications for the Pharmaceutical and Medical industries. While living in New York City, I worked for notable clients including Roche Labs, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Hitachi Medical, The Red Cross School of Nursing in Paris, MD Edge, and Avera Pharmaceuticals. I have also designed and developed web sites for various organizations in a wide range of industries, such as Pet Care, Real Estate and Hospitality. My clients include Beverage Management Services, KSDG, Retail Insite, Auberge de la Touques, etc.

I have extensive work experience in the Adobe product suite with special emphasis in Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Acrobat. I am also skilled in HTML and CSS, and I have working knowledge of Flash.

My attention to detail has also led me to working in the quality assurance industry. At LeapFrog, I have been reviewing and testing a variety of French and English fun and educational books, games and toys for toddlers to children age 8+ with an eagle eye for accuracy and consistency.

I hold a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Université Paris 8, as well as a degree in Computer Graphics from the Ecole d’Art in France. I strive to stay abreast of the newest technologies in the graphics, print, multimedia and web design fields by reading industry publications, networking with my peers, and attending continuing education classes on a regular basis.
