About Me

We can live in a world that we design…

I am a multidisciplinary artist: actor, musician, singer, author, editor, director, producer, graphic designer. Trained in drama/acting, I started working professionally as an actor in a theater company in 2005 with the play “Rendez-vous suspects”, then participated in television series, films and started doing voiceover work along the way. (You can view information on many of the projects I was involved in by visiting my Projects page.)

At a very young age I was fascinated to discover that communication is predominantly nonverbal and that gesturing, body-language, tone of voice and intention accounts for a much larger percentage of a conversation than mere words.
