  • Digital native of Generation Y, I grew up as a Millennial around the first Amstrad, Atari, IBM, and Macintosh home computers, playing with the 1986 first Batman video game, arcarde games of the 80s (Pong, Space Invaders, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, Street Fighter, Mega Man), the first and only Amstrad console of 1990, the NES, the Sega Mega Drive, the Super Nintendo, the Game Boy (1993 Mortal Kombat)the Sega Game Gear (1993 Fatal Fury), MS-DOS (1993 Doom, 1994 Warcraft, 1995 Command & Conquer), Windows 95 (AOL CD, Netscape Navigator, IRC, Encarta, FIFA 96, Tomb Raider, Duke Nukem 3D), Windows 98 (Starcraft, Quake III) and the first search engines launched before the rise of Google – WebCrawler,, Lycos, Infoseek, AltaVista, Magellan and Excite.
  • As a young student at the beginning of the millenium, I was responsible for marketing studies for FM radio stations at easyScore, a research and consulting company in music programming, and I took part in the emergence of the first Internet radio stations in France as a Radio Host and then as a Marketing Manager. Alumnus of the European Union's Erasmus program, trained by the French Foreign Trade Advisors (appointed by the Government of France) during my Master in International Management and Strategy at the Sorbonne University of Paris, founder and board member of Sorbonne Alumni, LSE (London School of Economics) alumnus in Global Media and Communications.

  • Acquiring a brand-new visibility among indie artists and unsigned bands from all around the world thanks to this position at this German music startup, I started to receive many requests from talents to become their artist manager or band manager and to advise them, especially in career management, strategy, international marketing and digital marketing. Therefore, between 2013 and 2016, I worked as a Talent Scout, discovering new talents, and as a Talent Manager, advising singers-songwriters and bands instead of multinational corporations and managing their careers in the music industry and in the media & entertainment industry. In 2013, I decided to diversify into the fashion industry by working as a model scout and model manager as well within my own international model agency.
