Curriculum vitae

  I come from Tournus, village located in Burgundy (France), famous for its vineyards and the Romanesque abbey. Second of six children, from whom each plays an instrument,at seven years old I decided to play the violin, but it has been since my first years that I was always having tools in my hands.
  Still an adolescent, I entered the violin making school of Mirecourt (France) where I studied for five years acquiring three diplomas.
  Later on, I worked for great French volin makers beside whom I improved myself in restoration as much as in fabrication. During this period, I worked with colleagues coming from different schools.
  From 2004 till 2012, I had a workshop in Valencia (Spain) in collaboration with Julien Schneider.
  Since 2012, I have a calm workshop in the green outskirts of Rotterdam where I dedicate myself to the fabrication and important restorations. Also, I collaborate with different violin makers, particularly with Guust Francois in Amsterdam, Jeremie Legrand in Landerneau, Elise Derochefort in Lisboa…
