I’m PEX, born and bred in Brittany, and now living in Montreal. I am a full-time Application Architect. I enjoy bike touring, hiking with my dog Pixel, running sessions with loud music, IPA beers with high IBUs, Earl Grey Tea, and music older than myself.
And when I don’t work or do any above activities, I imagine, design, prototype and build stuffs (which I happily combine with music
and beers). More than anything above, I am a very enthusiastic and curious maker with a vivid imagination.
It all started in my earliest childhood, as I have had an irreparable attraction for creating and prototyping. I used Legos or Meccanos to build my own toys, and I started working with wood when I was old enough to hold a hammer and a saw. Outside, I was building and deconstructing cabins as far as possible from the ground and imagined living like the Swiss Family Robinson.
Despite the hundreds of cuts, hammer blows, broken bones on my creations (mostly on my handmade skateboard and my soapbox racer), nothing has diminished my creative zeal. Even when the school had to call my parents when I started a business of carved surfboard necklace during the breaks when I was 10.
Of course, we all do mistakes (especially wearing surfboard necklaces) and I learned a lot of things the hard way. But I cherish all my memories when it’s related to tinkering and creating.
Older, I learned electronics, quick prototyping, and computer programming. This was a game-changer as now my creations would move and interact with my environment. I started with drones, then moved to full-size e-vehicles and smart home appliances with sensors.
I am now focusing more on designing small furniture and objects combining traditional woodworking, 3d printing, and electronics.

About the Fab Lab Approach
A Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop offering (personal) digital fabrication and is equipped typically with an array of flexible tools and devices with the aim to make “almost anything” (3D printer, CNC, Cutting and Milling machines, digital electronics assembly station..). While fab labs have yet to compete with mass production and its associated economies of scale, they are more than relevant when to empower individuals to create smart devices for themselves.
PEX Fab is a small maker space shared with other makers and located in Montreal, CANADA and is not officially affiliated to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) nor the FabFoundation.
I am sharing all the tools and resources with anyone willing to make things in the area, sharing most of the creations as open-source plans or files on this blog or on Thingiverse, and open to collaboration and knowledge transfer. All creations are under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License.
