Who am I?

Sam is a French serial entrepreneur and an angel investor based in San Francisco since 2010.
He has co-founded several companies. In 2009, he sold Talentueux, a web agency he has created in 2001.

Now VP Product at Kwarter inc., a company he co-founded, his new challenge is to build the geotagged mobile video commenting platform: Twicer.

Sam is an author too. He published a book about gamification in 2014, a topic which earned him the award of a USPTO patent (13/864,493).

In his spare time, he really enjoys writing about himself in the third person, helping young entrepreneurs and practicing extreme sports despite the fact of having a lovely wife and two kids.
