Coming from a family of artists, I naturally grew a passion for illustration. I would draw everywhere with anything ( at age two, I once used my own poop on a wall – lucky parents )… Listening to a wide variety of music and having a keyboard at home, my second passion developed in the form of music.

Coming from a family of artists, I naturally grew a passion for illustration. I would draw everywhere with anything ( at age two, I once used my own poop on a wall – lucky parents )… Listening to a wide variety of music and having a keyboard at home, my second passion developed in the form of music. Later in Junior high school, I started writing electronic dance music with friends and by the end of high school, we had a complete home studio and two released tracks on the european markets. With music, I could express my love of graphic design with the covers and videos I imagined. After graduation my dream came true when I was accepted to study Graphic Design at the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California. Not only did I learn from amazing teachers, sociology, design and the arts, I continued music at night finding balance between clubs and recording studios. It was my only way of keeping a certain sanity with the fast pace of the ArtCenter.

After four years of not sleeping, I returned to Paris where I founded my record label Pink Thing and freelanced in Graphic Design under the name The orangeman. I started teaching at the parisian branch of Parsons School New York once a week. It soon became time for me to give more time to Design and was hired by Euro RSCG C&O (Now Havas Worldwide Paris) as Senior Art Director but there was a twist. I was asked to imagine "very creative" concepts that would never be bought by clients, but would display the agency's creativity. It became immediately a challenge for me to create what was asked yet to have the concept sold! After 6 weeks working on my first project, we won an international pitch for a global bank's brand expression to my surprise! Fourteen months later, I was offered the position of Creative Director of Design at the agency, and took on all Design and Digital offerings.

In mid 2012, I was hired by Carré Noir (groupe Publicis) and one of French leading agencies, to take on the position of Executive Creative Director, leading 7 Creative Directors and about 50 Art Directors in the fields of Packaging, Branding, Corporate Identity, Retail and Digital. The challenge was quite immense and turned out to be a great move for me. I have had the privilege of working on amazing projects with talented people. In parallel, I have kept The orangeman, worked on my photography (landscapes and commercial fashion), illustration and music. Read Less
