My name is Stéphane Muller, I manage the MeryLab, a fablab in the North of Paris, and this is my portfolio/blog. You’ll find the documentation I have written for the Fab Academy as well as pictures and sometimes even documentation about my other projects. If you want to know a little more about me, keep reading!
My first degree and professional experience is in telecommunications, computers and networks. This was my first contact with electronics and computer programming. I have to say I didn’t really enjoy electronics at the time and mainly focused on computers. I then went on to spend a gap year in England studying design, woodwork and literature. From there I did a master’s degree in technical translation and became a translator (German and English). I translated technical documentation for 3 years, but eventually decided it wasn’t for me and started a new master’s degree, this time in multimedia instructional design.
I was a digital learning manager in various companies for 7 years, until I discovered fablabs and fell in love with making stuff.
The expert enough manifesto perfectly sums up my mindset. I strive to be a real Jack of all trades. We sometimes forget it, but the whole saying goes: Jack of all trades, master of none, still better than master of one.
