Seasoned creative professional with an industrial design and aerospace engineering background, my career started in the construction toy industry and quickly shifted towards business jets - just bigger toys after all !
I have designed many consumer products over the years but left my mark in the aerospace industry by bringing the user experience to a whole different level for Bombardier demanding clientele on its flagship aircraft program, the Global 7500, securing multiple patents on aircraft seat concepts. At Bombardier, I set up a DesignLab, a physical space with a small team of makers where ideas and concepts could be freely explored internally, in partnership with academia or non-traditional players. Following the basic principles of design thinking, ideas could be prototyped, become proof of concepts in a way to break patterns and let innovation find new ways.
I focus my attention today on innovation and creative teams management. One of my favorite subject remains people and goods' sustainable mobility and how the answers to those challenges that we face are to shape our cities, our day to day lives, and our future... oh yes, and airships too !
