Nathan in a few words

After working for different kinds of companies, startups, big companies, public/private companies, …
I am now looking for something challenging related to field engineering. I started 4 years ago working at Peugeot’s factory, helping them to build and implement new solutions for their needs, after 2 years I was missing some challenge and went more to the IT world of servers, devops, … But I felt that I was always missing the technical/ hands on of the automation world, so I started on the side some projects with artists that needed my technical knowledge in PLC and electronic design to help them build their ideas. I’m passionate about technical and engineering, I'm always looking to learn new things and want to implement them for a project. Recently I started to learn about ham radio and satellite communication which is a lot of fun, just to say that I’m very curious and I want to dig deeper to understand what I'm doing and what would be the best fit for the project.
