After working successfully with diverse design consultancies, I undertook the challenging role of Product Designer for the Nauder Garden manufacturing unit. In 1997, I joined Decathlon, where I created best-selling sporting goods products. While working for DecathIon, I won several prestigious design awards, including the International Design Excellence Award (USA), the Annual Design Review (USA), the Red Dot Award (D), and L’Observeur du Design (F). Then, Decathlon made a name for itself as a major player in innovation and also developed advanced tools of design and creativity. In a short span of time, Decathlon has attained the pinnacle as a topnotch innovative company (Business Week july08). I has also been a keen participant in many exhibitions held in different parts of the world for example at the Carrousel du Louvre, Centre Pompidou, Biennale de Saint Etienne, and the French Product Exhibition at the Korean Institute of Design Promotion. In 1999, I co-founded the European Alias Users Association, the largest organization dedicated to Alias Studio software users. I has taught product design and 3D modeling at ISD France since 1999.
