My first memories with the Internet go back to the 90s. Google didn’t exist yet, in the mainstream imaginary, people literally surfed the Internet. You couldn’t do as many things on the Web then as you can today, but I was already fascinated by the possibilities offered in terms of information and communication.
In 2005, I started a blog. Then, a second one. A third one. An entire network of websites. Gaining popularity, I developed many partnerships and digital marketing operations with some brands — sponsored posts, sponsored contests, display advertising.
Between 2005 and 2008, in the early days of Web 2.0, I registered on many social media platforms, many of which have now disappeared, and experimented as much as I could to promote my personal projects.
In 2009, I became a social media manager. The agency I worked for was one of the first to bet on social media marketing. I was a kind of special advisor for all operations on social media, at a time where Facebook was a hundred million members and many brands were trying to figure out if it was all just buzzword.
18 months after, I started my own business as a marketing consultant. I also started teaching digital marketing in business schools and universities, including the University of Strasbourg, the University of Upper-Alsace, the EM Strasbourg School, the ISEG Business School, the IUT Robert Schuman and the IUT of Haguenau, for a total of 400 hours.
During nearly 10 years, I had the chance to work with great companies or non-profits and to meet many exciting people. If during this time, I continued to develop my skills, refine my tactics and strategies to exceed my clients’ expectations, outsmart their competitors, often as a David in a world of Goliaths, a new path drove me forward.
In 2018, inspired by my experiences of freelancing, and those of my many colleagues in the industry, I moved to Kyiv with a new project in mind. A project with a whole new approach to finding and working with contractors in the IT and marketing industries.
