I'm the founder of A-wai Amplification, and a DIY enthusiast, particularly when it comes to tube electronics. Even though the company no longer exists, I still develop and publish tube projects for guitar and bass guitar, such as the Fat Bastard preamplifier and its DC/DC converter module.

I'm also a major contributor to the Projet G5 website, and when I have enough free time, I publish articles about tube electronics on my blog (French only, as there are already tons of resources for English-speaking people).

Last but not least, being a software engineer, I contribute as much as possible to various free software projects, such as calamares or debos, and I recently initated a project to bring Debian on the PinePhone.
