At 13 he began to play synth in his first band (all styles from rock, French traditional songs to pop, jazz...). Later on, he recorded for a well-known French rapper MC Solaar, engineered by his friend Phil Zdar (Cassius). He's been featured on several projects over the last 10 years. At age 30, he moved to the French Alps, and started working as a composer for TV.
