Hailing from Paris and living in Cully, Switzerland, I have composed on different continents for cinema, TV, opera, theatre and choreography since 1989.
From cinema to opera, theatre to choreography, TV dressing to sound design for animated movies, I like to discover and explore new themes by meeting artists and authors from the four corners of the world.
Creator of the credits score of the TV show “C DANS L’AIR” on France 5, I received the prize “Best film music” of the SUISA Foundation at the Locarno Festival for the music of the movie “Stolen Holidays” by Olivier Peyon with Bernadette Lafont and Claude Brasseur. Concerning theatre, I have also received other prizes in Denmark and China.
Last challenge to date, my incursion into the world of opera. The director Giacomo Ravicchio invited me to revisit with him Orfeo ed Euridice by Gluck in Copenhagen, then in the opera of Odense in Denmark in 2018. The disc is available today on the principal platforms.

After seven years of training at the piano, student of the jazzman Michel Sardaby, followed by two years of training at the SACEM performing arts school in Paris, I had the need to go discover world music.
Stage musician for the ten following years, I had the luck of playing (piano and keyboards) with artists and bands from the whole world. With them I played on stages and at music festivals in Europe.
In parallel to concerts and studio sessions, from 1990 I started composing for visual arts, performing arts, television and commercials. From this moment on I have also been exploring and using the new technologies.
Serving stories to be shared and those who imagined them, I fusion my musical writing with natural or supernatural sounds I collect during my travels. Without limitation of musical styles, I am looking for vibrational music and organic sounds and I draw my inspiration in the range of world music that I have been practicing for nearly 30 years.
Living in Switzerland near Lausanne since 2000, I collaborate regularly with Swiss french directors and choreographers.
I have also been working for more than 20 years with the Italian director Giacomo Ravicchio and the Cie Meridiano from Copenhagen. With them I have the immense pleasure of sharing a long and beautiful creative adventure at the rate of one creation a year.
Finally, for several years I have also been collaborating with Kohey Nakadashi and the Cie KIO from Osaka, for whom I have composed music for several performances in Japan.
