Bringing ideas to life since 2005...
France - New York - San Francisco
I am a dual French / American citizen.
My mother is from New York and my father was from San Francisco. But I'm born and raised in France
I consider myself a citizen of the world.
English - French - Spanish
I speak, read and write English, French and Spanish fluently.
I've lived in Paris, Montpellier, Madrid, NY, LA and now based between SF & France.
I love travelling and discovering cultures.
Music - Hip-Hop - Tech
My mother is a singer & a voice teacher, my father was an artist. I've been on stages and in studios since a little kid.
I fell in love with Hip Hop at age 14 and started DJ'ing in 2000. I didn't grow up with internet but quickly adapted to tech.
Projects & Story telling
I love ideas, projects and stories... But I learned young that being creative also meant having to find ways to make money. And that communication and attention were key.
I have one foot in the creative field & music business and the other in the entrepreneur/startup and event world.
I specialize in Project creation, Management, International Communication, Talent scouting, Team building, Branding, Content creation, Public Relations & Marketing Strategies.
Public speaking, reading a room or person, catching people's attention and telling a good story is my forte
I love people & I'm passionate about getting people together. I've been working with artists & entrepreneurs since 2005 helping them bring their vision to the public.
I'm a natural people person and was already nicknamed Mr. "Connecting People" back in the Nokia days...
From music to the tech / app / web, startup world... I have extensive experience leveraging networks and connections to turn ideas into reality.
I've been blessed to get to meet and/or work with some of my childhood heroes and some of the greats of our time.
I have been consulting remote and in-person since 2010.
I started in the music industry but then branched out to startups and have found these worlds have a lot to learn from each other and are complementary. I am at ease in any environment: corporate, artistic, urban, high scale or casual.
I have worked for International projects, startups, artists and companies looking to communicate to the US or European market and vice-versa.
I've helped companies raise brand awareness, funds and create thriving events & communities.
I have been organizing events since 2005.
As a DJ, I first started in my studio apartment, then mixed in bars and open mics before moving on to bigger things. I did a few clubs but often preferred live shows so I started organizing my own events, or helping others with theirs.
From open-mics, concerts and showcases to international bookings, tours, art exhibits, corporate gatherings and pitch sessions and now taking part in a 3 day annual convention.
I am familiar with logistics, and behind the scenes but my specialty is hosting the event, making sure the vibe is right.
