About Me


I want to be extra-ordinary.


OK That's the hard part I guess...I am pretty laid-back and quite open-minded. I like sun rays on my face while listening to some music in the street. That makes me feel alive.
I like movies like anyone else and I enjoy socializing with my friends. I like focusing on details as they tend to reveal much more. I am a very dedicated person and can be strong-minded. (nice way not to say stubborn)
I am a musician and that what keeps me most busy.
You can see me in action here:


There's not much point trying to judge people. Accept them the way they are or leave them.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Here's 23 random things about me:

1. I fell off a cliff when I was a rock-climber in my youth, 30 feet and just a few scratches. My head banged on the ground 20 centimeters away from a sharp rock.

2. I had tea with Morcheeba.

3. My first gig in London was on a Monday night very first act in front of … 1 person, my best female friend Tamara.

4. I can put around 40 coins on my elbow and catch them all with my hand from the same arm (I would need to practice again) but I once consider calling Guiness book.

5. I was so into Astronomy from 6 to 12 that I knew pretty much all the planet dimensions, weight, all the constellations etc… I wanted to be an astronaut but one day my dad bluntly told me that this would not happen because he’s color blind and so should I be….. turns out I am not color blind. :-/

6. I scored 20 out of 20 in the French baccalaureat at the French oral exam. That’s theoretically impossible but I never knew if it was a mistake or not.

7. I can play a tune on 10 different instruments.

8. I was born on Spring day.

9. I have traveled to 4 continents.

10. I have eaten a big jar of Nutella a week for 15 years in a row. They nearly went bankrupt when I stopped.

11. I believe in Karma

12. I have called my cat Lollipop BEFORE English people told me it was the most ridiculous name.

13. My two favourite movies are “Lost in translation” and “Magnolia”

14. When I sold my flat one guy from AIR came for a visit. Completely unexpected obviously.

15. My favourite city in the world is San Francisco

16. I have been a smoker longer than I have been a non-smoker but I never quit quitting! (edit: looks like I have won the battle ...)

17. I got mugged in the street. (bye bye ipod nano)

18. For the same height I have weighted 55 kilos, I am now 68 and I am still skinny.

19. I can fall asleep only on one side no matter how tired I am.

20. I broke my collar bone in Greece. I fell off a scooter at probably 10 miles an hour and my passenger fell on me. There was no hospital in a range of 200 miles.

21. I got bitten by a snake and it hurts like a MF.

22. I can make two different sounds with my mouth at the same time.

23. On a good morning after a huge party I can probably sing lower than Barry White.
