William Le Ferrand
I am a 29 year-old web enthusiast from Paris, living in San Francisco since December 2010.
During my CS studies at Ecole Polytechnique I wrote a couple of technology-related webservices that were opportunities to mix business and my primary passion, software development. Since graduation in 2010, I have been enjoying an entrepreneurial life between France and the US, with some consulting interludes.
I'm currently consulting with several companies in the Bay Area, building prototypes of web services from the bottom up.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and my two little daughters. I'm the holder of a FAA Private Pilot Certificate with an Instrument Rating.
