About me

I'm a Software engineer, passionate about Lisp, Emacs, Smalltalk and the Web. I split my time between Stockholm (Sweden) and Brest (France).

I'm also a hobbyist street photographer.


I'm the CTO at Företagsplatsen. I previously worked in the RMoD team at Inria. I was also the co-founder of Objectfusion, a company dedicated into building custom web applications.


You can find most of my git repositories on my GitLab instance and on GitHub.

Past projects

  • I'm the creator of Amber, a Smalltalk that runs inside the web browser (I don't maintain it anymore)
  • I'm also the author of SmalltalkHub, a code repository and project management application for Smalltalk (I don't maintain it anymore)
  • I contributed to MongoTalk, the Pharo driver for MongoDB, and Phriak, the Pharo driver for Riak.
  • I worked with Esteban on Tide, a new web framework for Pharo and Amber.

You can learn more about Amber on the GitHub page, and can find more projects on my Github and SmalltalkHub accounts.
