I am passioned by travelling worldwide, Arts, and board sports in salty elements.
I was born in Montpellier, France, and grew up in Paris, therefore quite far from the sea or the ocean. But fortunately, I had the chance and I used to visit regularly my family in Montpellier, all around the year, and for a longer period in summer time.
Spendind time on the seaside of the Mediterranean Sea gave me the opportunity to discover and practice nautic board sports, especially with sails, and to meet a TV team when I was a student. A few months later, back to cold and clowdy Paris, I entered for the first time in a TV channel, MCM, the French music television. Suddenly, my life changed.
I finished my Law studies whilst working time to time for MCM, getting skills and discovering corporation life in media and entertainment.
