I was born in Béthune (France) in 1967 and am binational (French-Swiss).
I had the chance to travel very young in several countries thanks to my parents.
We used to change countries approximatly every 3 years.
Carthage (Tunisia), Rome (Italy), Sao Paulo (Brazil) but also
Péronne, Nîmes, Le Beausset (France) and Evolène, Geneva (Switzerland).
I was able to immerse in various cultures and learned several languages which are very usefull to me today.
After obtaining the Baccalauréat, I embarked on 2 years of Biology at Geneva's University.
My attraction to moutain culture finally changed my outlook of life.
I settled in Evolene (Switzerland) for 7 years where Raymond George trained me in the art of cabinetmaking
and fine woodworking. I can never thank Raymond enough for passing his knowledge.
After obtaining the federal certificate of capacity in Martigny, I practiced for 10 years as fine woodworker.
At the same time, being a guitarist since I was 12, I became interested in lutherie and the idea of making it activity
came naturally.Thanks to funding, Iwas able to train in the art of guitarbuilding.
The luthiers : Gilles Mercier and Yvon Le Moing inspired me a lot.
The workshop opened in 2005.
I had the chance to work on guitar models with Juan Carmona, Valérie Duchateau and Yamandu Costa.
