I was born on 29th December 2003 in Poitiers, in France. 🇫🇷 .
I always knew I wanted to be a developer since the age of 12...

But in 2014, something special happened. I started making YouTube videos and knowing that I'm a bit of a stickler for details and a perfectionist, I designed my YouTube banner and video thumbnails: that's how I got into the design business.

As my design skills grew, I thought why not offer my skills to other youtubers. That's how I started to get clients and to make YouTube thumbnails and banners.

In April 2018, I did a internship in a web agency (Web Impulse). This agency is specialized in website creation and web development. This internship confirmed my choice to make web development my livelihood. It's at this period that I started to work on UI Design (in addition to Graphic Design).

In February 2019, I said to myself why not do the #100daysofcode (a challenge that consists in learning a lot of things related to code in 100 days) and share my progress with other developers. That's what I did. I had opened my Instagram account (harold.ao previously harold.codes). At that point, I took web development seriously.

It is with motivation and ambition that I wish to develop my skills from day to day because I want to continue to learn and create beautiful things.
