Random Thoughts by Fabien Penso


I'm Fabien Penso. I'm a tech and product focus person, a photographer, and I love traveling. I enjoy being busy, started working professionally in tech in 1998, and never stopped since. Worked for years as a consultant, cofounded a few companies and love being involved in new projects.

You can contact me via email. I can also be found on GitHub, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr and you can check my Linkedin profile.
