My name is Alexis, I am 32 years old and I am Web Developer since September 2019. I was fortunate to have a path outside the box that allowed me to forge strong skills of adaptability and responsiveness, allowing me to apprehend each new project with serenity and determination. I can be honest when I need to and reconcile when necessary.

After a normal schooling and a scientific baccalaureate, I didn’t follow the classic path most people do. My aspirations were different. After a few unsuccessful attempts to study different subjects, what I really wanted was obvious : follow my instinct and create my music label as I have been dreaming for years. It was the beginning of the STRAIGHT & ALERT Records, Label and Online Shop dedicated to Hardcore / Metal and Punk music, which will last 6 years.

It was during this period that the taste for learning, as an autodidact, came to me. I have thus touched on various fields, ranging from communication, marketing to the tour booking, but also customer relations, design or the one that got me into digital world: running an online shop

And that gives me a real advantage: I have been where you’re at! I too have been a customer and had to trust a Web Developer, hoping he understands all my expectations. So, I think I can understand yours.

In 2018 the feeling of having gone around my job and the desire to gain new skills pushed me to call it quits with my label to start learning about Web Developing. 7 months later and a Junior Web Developer degree from Openclassrooms, a new chapter begins.

Music also runs most of my life: bass, guitar, drums, vocals … I like to try everything. It gave me the opportunity to tour in Europe, USA and Japan. And I do not forget my first love: Skateboarding.
