Experience

⎔ After several months spent learning Web technologies, I released my first website on the 3rd december 2010. It was initally called jbkaloya.com and then was renammed Pixelsdev.fr and dealt with video tutorials.

⎔ I was after hired by several photographers and various free-lances to design and develop their portfolios.

⎔ 2015 was a key year : after almost a year of development and design I released my first app called Hype! This app enables you to find the best trendy places such as coffee-shops, cocktails bars, restaurants, clubs and more in all world big cities.

⎔ For a couples of months during 2017 I've been working and living in San Francisco. As part of my studies I took part in a digital bootcamp for entrepreneurs focused on startups in the Bay Area. During this period I've also join the Timelapse team, a design studio located in SOMA, as UI/UX intern. We also collaborated on their latest project called Deckshop.
