About

Game Developer

After studying Computer Science and finding a job as a Software Engineer I entered ENJMIN in Angoulême to study Game Design. I then worked on a few video games before starting a PhD.

Since then I have never stopped making games. I co-founded the game collective Le Chant du cygne and also kept working on my own projects.

PhD

As a PhD candidate at CNAM/CEDRIC in Paris I focused on the specific narrative form of emergent games that make extensive use of procedurally generated content. I published a few articles about it.

Since 2011 I have taught game and level design, computer science and game development at the University Paris XIII, University Paris Sud, CNAM and ICAN.
