I'm a backend developer on the Matrix project, and one of the core committers on Synapse, the reference implementation of a Matrix homeserver, and I'm lucky enough to be doing that as my day job as an employee of Element (the startup founded by the creators of Matrix).

Outside of work, I'm a French guy who fell in love with London and decided to move there, and I spend a big chunk of my time exploring the city. On the less happy side I've also got a background with dealing with anxiety and burnout, and working through them with self-care, meditation and therapy over the past year or so made me want to share what I've learned with as many people as it might help.
