Hi, I’m Thomas

I love product design. To me, it’s means building a helpful, efficient, beautiful and pure product.
Concept and launch a powerful product is complex and the way to success is constantly changing. This is why each project is a huge opportunity to challenge and to improve myself.
Develop a powerful product is design user experience. It’s means a lot to me. It is an opportunity to help people to improve their lives by accomplishing tasks or solving problems for them. A lot of skills are needed to do this. My capacity to understand the benefits of each of them is my biggest strength. I am the guarantor of the product’s vision throughout each step of the process.

MEDITATION

I practice daily Vipassana meditation. 2 hours each day to train my mind to see things as they really are. It’s a powerful tool to learn about myself, to free my mind and to be happy.

Many times a year, I improve my technique by going to meditation retreats for 10 days of intense practice ; these are deep and magical moments.

FOOD

Like a lot of people, I like to cook and to eat good food. However, for me food is more than just a pleasurable or  mandatory things to do for survival, it’s a way of life.

I became a vegetarian. I did this for my health, the health of the earth and because I like animals as well.

I consider food as my first medicine, That is why I constantly learn how to improve it. It’s a way to be healthy and happy in the same time.

Adventure

ADENTURE

I really like adventure. To me, the best play area to have adventure is in nature. That is why I  spend most of my free time in the mountains to practice mountaineering, trekking, climbing and skiing etc.

All those activities help me to stay connected to nature and to get a hold of good energy.

RUNNING

Today, running is like my mediation practice but in movement. Like mediation, running is now a part of my life. I regularly practice ultra-trail, meaning that I’m able to run more than 10 hours continuously in the mountains. Practicing this sport is a beautiful way to challenge myself.
