" We start ageing when we finish learning "

After a first professional life as an economist, it was around the age of 30 that the need to create emerged in me. From a young age, it is alongside my father that I observe, I assimilate and I learn to work with my hands. It is naturally that I turn to cabinetmaking to professionalize this know-how. Apprenticeship carried out within the Superior School of Cabinetmaking of Barcelonnette.


I have a certain vision of craftsmanship: I dont work on 3D drawings but simply with a sheet and a pen. The manual tool remains a priority in my work.

I draw inspiration from the era of classic racing and then I reinterpret it. I remain faithful to my original idea, then it is up to me to resolve the technical constraints.


As for my inspiration, it is being built. From motorsports to Kustom Kulture without forgetting the child in me, I draw mine from all these concentrations of talent. Based in the French Alps, this environment entertain my vision of craftsmanship.
