A cultural explorer
, I have been for twenty years leading creative projects with local communities on several continents. Based on their traditional heritage, this initiatives led to films, records, shows and conferences.
In 1998, I founded Altamira
, an international cultural project combining anthropology and creative projects which took me into musical and human adventures
in Asia and Africa but also in my town Saint-Denis. In 2014, I made my first film, PAYSANNE,
which describes the natural and social ecosystem of a village in the highlands of Madagascar.
Through these projects, I have been exploring and highlighting the cultural treasure held by indigenous communities all over the world, as well as their remarkable social and ecological competence
. With their artistic universe deeply connected to their natural environment and to their social life, they can provide us with promising ways of understanding human development.
I share this exprience by giving talks
in places such as the Quai Branly Museum, the National Museum for Asian Arts
(Paris, France) or the University of the Philippines
, and also as an instructor
in sociocultural project management.
Cultural project manager, film-maker, music composer, public speaker : these multiple fields of action
allow me to share a vision of mankind and the world nourished by what I learned from the men and women I met acros the planet..
My cultural works have been acclaimed by major french cultural magazines
such as Télérama, Les Inrockuptibles, Mondomix, and were awarded
by the prestigious Charles Cros Academy.
