My name is Aurélien Gâteau, I am a French software engineer currently living in a small village near Paris with my wife and children.
When I was a child, I wanted to be a cartoonist. That was before I stumbled on this strange plastic thing they call a computer. I met my first one when I was 9 year old. It was an Amstrad CPC464 and it changed my life. From this day on, I knew I would be a developer. I never stopped writing code since then.
I still enjoy drawing, even if I lack the time to create real compositions nowadays. I guess the combination of these two passions is what got me interested in user experience, design and imaging.
On week days you can find me on Freenode IRC server, my nickname is agateau. When I am connected I am usually present on #kde-devel.
