Hi,

My name is Erik (@nerik) and I am a

freelance game and
app developer

(I imagine and build nice things for all kinds of screens)

I am a happy member of lab212 :)

More ?

I like immersive user experiences. I am fascinated by interaction and pretty things generated and animated by code. I like to experiment and tinker with what's new. I like design. I like designers ♥.

(I also like music, good food, simple things)

I advise, analyse and code. I like minimalistic and pragmatic code (rather toolset than framework, composition than inheritance, best practices than design patterns...). I like efficient designer/developer workflows. I like open source (here's my github profile).

I code for PCs, Macs, iOs, Android, tactile and tangible devices, interactive installations, with tools like Unity3D or Haxe. Flash is my first love and I still code with pleasure on that platform (AS3, Air, Stage3D, Jsfl...), but also Javascript/jQuery, Php, MySQL, CSS/SASS.

I worked in startups, in agencies, in an e-learning company. As en employee, freelancer, student; in France and in the Netherlands.

I learned at the Gobelins School in Paris. I now teach there from time to time.

I speak french, english, and a little bit of dutch. Maybe one day I'll learn Volapük or Solresol.

Contact

I'm available for freelance. Contact me by mail (hello@nerik.me), phone (+33 6 63 52 32 25), skype (erik.escoffier).
