Fascinated by innovative ideas, new technology and entrepreneurship,
I work on creative projects large and small, some serious and some just for fun.
As a side project, I created a web app called "Pixelixe Studio" in 2019. Basically, Pixelixe Studio offers an image creation tool to help marketers, bloggers and small businesses worldwide to promote their products and services on all digital platforms. Users with no design skill can easily design engaging graphics and images. Pixelixe is accessible in one click, no account required at all and let everybody create and edit images for Social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Youtube), ad banners (Mobile and web), blogs and more.https://pixelixe.com/
In 2013, I co-founded Jooxter, a company focused in smart building innovation. At Jooxter, we built a Saas product (mobile app & web app) improving occupancy rates of large buildings using an innovative technology based on IoT, Big Data and Machine Learning (AI). After two years of self-financing, we raised 1 Million Euros to expand our sales effort in Europe (Luxembourg, Belgium, UK, Italy, etc) and hired a team of 20 people. I left the project in 2017, the company still exists today.https://jooxter.com/
In 2012, I developed the Qube product that quickly became a huge success for my company "Eenox". Once a QR code was generated using Qube, the technology could geolocalise QR scans to track where the codes were most commonly used - which leads to more efficient strategic deployment and more efficient marketing campaigns. The solution tracked specific geolocalisation informations such as a latitude and longitude using either GPS information or either IP location method. Based on Big data technologies and machine learning, this project was built upon top of the art technologies still existing today.Press Article
In 2010, I founded Eenox, a mobile marketing Saas company. Eenox Studio, the first product of the company, provided an online web design and editing software where users could create and download, directly from their browser, touch-optimized interactive websites and mobile web applications with no technical knowledge required. Eenox gave users access to a powerful "HTML5" web application allowing to literally draw apps and sites from a web browser.
In 2007, I created an open source project and managed a community of international contributors (USA, Canada, India, Poland, Spain, etc...). KontrolPack was an open source cross platform software (Mac, Linux, Windows) written in C, created to connect in a safe and secure way computers regardless of their operating systems. Its main goal is to let users access their files and folders from private or professional network! More than 300 000 (known) downloads since the first release. The second major release was embedded into several GNU/Linux distributions : Ubuntu, Gentoo, Arch Linux, etc...Press Article
If you would like to easily access, edit, and save files across multiple computers, free application FeelHome allowed users to share files across operating systems and over the web. Once you install FeelHome on your computer and specify which folders you want to share, you can access those files from the web or from another computer in your virtual FeelHome network. FeelHome suscess was immediate with 40.000 downloads the first two months.Press Article
Before building a product, the most important question is always "what problem are we trying to solve?" (User interviews, market studies, etc..).
Once a clear problem definition has been defined, prototypes and iterations should start (Design Thinking, MVP, Lean, Scrum, etc..) .
I have more than 12 years of experience managing teams and projects on a daily bases. During those 12 years, I had the opportunity to learn and master "Lean", "Scrum" and other "Agile" methodologies. My experiences as a teacher also helped me a lot to share my knownledge and prepare future leaders.
I had opportunities to work as a software architect and at executive levels (CEO/CTO) among a variety of eclectic companies (and IS/IT). From mainframe migration to SOA deployments passing by iOS/Android mobile app developments, Big data based projects, IoT development and machine learning algorithms (Neural Networks, AI).
