- What is your training and background (conservatory or self-taught)?
I have an artistic training in an adjoining field (the applied arts). I consider myself self-taught. Subsequently, I felt the need to combine theory with practice and I took lessons in music theory, piano, and followed an orchestration training.
Exchanges with other composers are also very rich. I coordinated the musical part of Emergence, 'Summer University of Cinema' from 2010 to 2014.

- Since when are you a composer?
I was 23 when I signed my first publishing contract. I have always composed music without putting the qualification of composer to it. It's only been fifteen years since I grasped the meaning of this word.

- What instrument(s) do you play?
Piano, vocals, electronics

Has worked on selected films at:

Aubagne International Film Festival, Cinematographic Meetings of Gindou, Notes and Canvases

Has worked on films released by:

TCM Cinema, Independent cinemas, DVD... and 11 more
