At a very young age he graduated successfully from the Music Conservatoire of Tours (France) followed by the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris and Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris.

He started creating and conducting his own works at Radio France, followed by Salle Pleyel, Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Théâtre de la Ville, and even Carnegie Hall in New York.

For five years he served as Associate Music Director of Three Cultures Orchestra and Chorus based in Rabat and Seville. He becomes then assistant conductor for Marc Minkowski and Les Musiciens du Louvre, whom he conducts in concert.

From 2015 to 2018, he has been active as Music Director and Conductor for South Asia Symphonic Orchestra and Bangkok Chamber Orchestra, as well as the CEO of South Asia Music Production and Studio in Bangkok, wich have made more than 50 recordings.

As a conductor he directed his own works and classical repertoire with musicians of Radio France, Paris Opera Symphonic Orchestra, Orchestre Lamoureux, National Orchestra of Prague, London Symphonic Orchestra, Orchestra of the Bulgarian Radio, Bucharest Symphonic Orchestra, Orchestre National de Bordeaux, Sarrebrucken StadtOrchester, Orchestra of Budapest, European Camerata and Orchestra of Andalusia, Beijing Symphonic Orchestra, Bangkok Symphonic Orchestra…

He also performed as conductor and arranger alongside many famous Jazz and Pop musicians such as Charles Aznavour, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Didier Lockwood, Francis Lai, Régine, Liane Foly, Anggun, Gerard Manset, Michel Fugain, Marc Lavoine, Marianne James, Arielle Dombasle, Sylvie Joly, Louis Bertignac, Cecilia Cara, André Ceccarelli or Jean-Marie Ecay.

His writing talents promptly met his composing skills resulting in the creation and production of several successful Musicals including "Anges et Démons", "Romeos et Juliettes" or "Monsieur Luxure", all of them critically acclaimed. His last creation “The Electro Symphonic Project” became a huge success of Bordeaux National Opera.

Resolutely returning to film music composition, he signed the original scores for a number of feature films including movies by Claude Lelouch, Luc Besson, Xavier Palud or Nae Carenfil, as well as many productions in China, where he gave out over a hundred live performances.
