I am Léna Piquet and I'm a Senior Product Manager and Technical Artist at Adobe. I use the Internet pseudo "Froyok" to sign my work since 2003.
My field of expertise is 3D graphics rendering as well as UX/Tool software design. I always been interrested in building tools and pushing visual effects to new levels, sometimes both at the same time.
