About me

I am a French industrial designer with over twenty years of experience, I live in Mumbles with my family, a beautiful village in Wales after spending ten years in Hong Kong from 1996 until 2006 where I worked three years for a French watch manufacturer before setting up my own company Bleu Ltd. 

I oversee all aspects of a project from initial sketches, design development, 3D and renderings. 

I design products in various fields such as consumer electronics, home accessories, mobile devices, connected devices, watches and transportation, through my experience in Hong Kong, I also help companies looking for a manufacturer in Asia. 

Projects for:

FLIT bike, LEGO Robotic, Jabra, Acoustic Research, Clim8, Native Union (I helped them to launch their brand through the POP Phone and the Moshi Moshi BT Curve handsets, both a commercial success), Arwin Technology Ltd, Innovative Converged Devices, Milla Poignées, Soil Design Group, PDC Europe Sleeving Systems, Naeo Ltd, Sonneclair.

I am working for the last six years on an electric folding bike with FLIT bike, a start-up based in Cambridge, closely working with the engineers to be sure that every detail and shape is optimized for the manufacturing process and to ensure the product is aesthetically beautiful.
