My name is Maxime Valette. I have been a web developer since the age of 7 and a web entrepreneur since the age of 15. I have built entertaining websites like VDM (VieDeMerde), FML (FMyLife), and BetaSeries. I am also the founder of FeedPress and CTO of ComeUp.
I am passionate about how technology and data can contribute to the entertainment industry on a large scale. This includes aspects such as creation, production, marketing, and entrepreneurship.
