Still in the

learning process.

Starting my working career back in 1993 at MTV Networks Europe in London,

I spent 4 years there as a creative for on-air and off-air departments.
Awarded in 1996 for the MTV Europe Music Awards campaign, I then went on co-founding Milk Projects, being co-author of the book ‘Sneakers : size isn’t everything’,

as well as co-director of ‘Sneakers : the film’, in 1999.
Back in France, I've been working closely with several production companies and design agencies such as Les Télécréateurs, View and MGH!/Après. Besides my consulting roles, I've been working as an independent on-air producer, music video director, designer, art director and associate creative director for various clients such as UniversalMusic, Virgin/EMI, Cartoon Network, Boomerang & TCM, Gong, SonyMusic, TF1, FranceTélévisions, StudioCanal, Fast Retailing Group, Louis Vuitton, Adidas, Nike, Fox Japan, Numéro Magazine, LFP, Altice Group, History Channel Japan...

I also founded and opened Nessuno Studio in Tokyo in 2010, acting as a research, creative and production lab.
Consistently recognized for creativity, high production values, and attention to detail in design and production, I understand and value the process of design strategy, exploration, concept and execution. I have extensive knowledge and experience in visual branding, network redesigns, marketing and promotion, program graphics, typography, arts and design history, production and post production, as well as print design. I have always proven ability to motivate and inspire design teams to deliver targeted high end creative content under tight deadlines, making myself an expert in concept and design strategy development for network identities or digital marketing campaigns.
Nowadays, I live and work as an art & creative director and brand consultant between Paris, London and Tokyo.
