Architect, grew up in Paris. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture Paris-Malaquais in 2002. Between 1996-1997 he spent a year at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics where he got to know young Hungarian architects including some of the founding members of KÉK. In 2008, he became aware of the existence of KÉK. One cannot neglect that this fact played a role in convincing him to locate to Budapest. In France he has worked at firms with hundreds of employees (architecture-studio) and at number of smaller studios with experimental approach (Feichtinger, koz, plan01). He declares himself as one of the modest representatives of French "optimistic" architecture, so he regularly contributes in organising events within this subject.
