Julien MAHE-LERONDEAU

Hello. I'm Julien.

I'm a french Creative Technologist & Teacher.

I explore technologies with creativity in mind. I help creative teams, agencies & brands to find creative ideas involving relevant technology and I help to design and craft innovative user experiences.
I'm a former Web developer, UX & technical Web projects manager.
I love to make things, I love to teach (I currently do it at Gobelins & Sciences Po Paris) and I love to help people better understand technology.
