With 16 years experience working with some of the foremost studios, artists, brands, film and advertising companies, I am an accomplished French sound engineer specialising in music production / engineering and sound post production for film, as well as a classically trained pianist and composer.
My skills were harnessed as an assistant sound engineer at the famous Studios Davout in Paris – one of the top-ranking, music recording studios in France. I earned my stripes working with artists such as Alicia Keys, indie band Archive, Kool Shen or Charles Aznavour as well as mastering the art of orchestral recording.
Equipped with practical knowledge gained at Davout, I entered the world of freelance expanding my skillset to film documentaries and TV programmes working as a production mixer, supervising sound editor and dubbing mixer. In this time, I was fortunate to work with La Bogothèque and recorded artists such as Sigur Rós, Vampire Weekend, Beirut and Fleet Foxes.
Continuously evolving as a sound engineer my freelancing led me to work professionally with global brands such as Nintendo and Ubisoft on commercials as a production mixer, sound editor and dubbing mixer. Soon after moving to London in 2011, I co-created the indie electronic label ‘Days Of Being Wild’ and produced/engineered for numerous indie artists such as Piano Interrupted, Franz Kirmann, Rocket Number Nine and A Dancing Beggar. I soon focused on producing and writing music for media (films, commercials, idents, music/sound libraries), also recording BBC’s UK charity ‘Children In Need’ 2012 single ‘Wish I Belonged’ for Island Records.
In addition to music, sound for film has always been a passion and earning selection for the British Film Institute (BFI) Film Festival through the American film ‘Destiny Lives Down the Road’ as supervising sound editor/sound designer, dubbing mixer and music mixer, was a career highlight.
I continue to collaborate with directors on short films – recently winning ‘best sound’ in the 48 hour film competition in London; and being selected at Fester Festival – Los Angeles- for the experimental film ‘Memento Mori’. I am currently working with music label producers on upcoming artists in the UK and Australia.
Having originated my own career equipped with a Bachelor of Science in Sound Engineering and Degree in Physics, I recently re-visited the classroom. It was a pleasure to impart my industry knowledge as an academic at SAE Institute’s ‘World Headquarters’ in Oxford, UK, where, as the Senior Audio Lecturer, I delivered a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts in Audio Production, hopefully inspiring creativity and talent in the next generation of sound engineers.
I am now based in Melbourne, Australia.
