    Technical and associative
    I constantly express my creativity through engineering projects combining different passion such as sport or industrial design. I designed and manufactured a carbon fiber longboard which was featured on several industrial design websites such as Yanko Design and Core77.
    I was team manager and in charge of the design and manufacture of composite and polymer parts of a prototype car for the Shell Eco-Marathon Europe. The Eco-Marathon is an annual competition sponsored by Shell, in which participants build special vehicles to achieve the highest possible fuel efficiency. We were 27th out of 172 teams at the Shell Eco-marathon Europe 09 with 1082km per litre of gas and we beat the university record for the second year in a row.
    I practice other sports such as rugby, snowboard and surf. During this activity, I am able to practise another hobby which is filming and video editing
