I was born in Paris, France. As far as I can remember my life has been devoted to music. I started playing guitar at 13 and went on a first tour at 17. At that time I thought of enrolling at the renowned Mirecourt National School of Luthiery in the Vosges mountains. Life decided otherwise and the next 18 years were spent living as a professional musician. I also taught guitar, privately and in classes, for over 10 years. In the early 1990s I started working as a sound engineer and electronic musician, producing and mixing music for a handful of artists along my own. I moved to New-York City in 1999. Since 2003 I reside with my wife, video artist Virginia Valdes, in the beautiful western mountains of Maine. Until the end of 2007 I was part of Pantheon Guitars crew, working under Dana Bourgeois supervision.
I knew Laurent Brondel when he worked with Dana Bourgeois and sent me one of his guitars to critique. I was immediately impressed with his design ideas that marry simple lines with great tone. I look forward to each Brondel I get a chance to play.
