    En résumé

    I created my first website in 2001 (about a video game) and my blog Quo Vadis? in 2004. Since, I founded Soul Kitchen in 2006, a blog about independent music where I directed 100+ unplugged sessions featuring Justin Bieber, Florence + The Machine and many others. In 2010, I co-founded and directed P20RIS, a music webserie (2 seasons) where I filmed 20 artists in the 20 districts of Paris (5M views). I also directed live to tape concerts, including "Lilly Wood & The Prick au Trianon"​ shown in 40+ theaters. I'm a multi-skilled and dynamic person who like combining my personal interests to my professional skills to work the best I can. That's why I became a social media manager. I love creating, innovating, testing and achieving! As I've been freelance for a long time, I can work in fast-paced environment and have a high integration capacity. And I like chocolate and blue tea. I perfectly manage social medias for brands or people as a communication channel to reach and recruit new clients, or as a customer support channel to answer clients'​ questions. Through my experiences I learned to work in international context (english or french) and can work with many departments to manage a project or solve an issue. After 3 years managing social media strategy for Les cinémas Gaumont Pathé in France and 6 months in a startup as a YouTube artistic director, I founded SocialTube to manage new influencers (youtubers, instagramers, viners etc.) and create brand contents with them. I also worked as a consultant to manage digital influence of French and international movie stars (Binoche, Marceau, Holland, Depp, Lawrence...). I just finished a 18 months contrat in a pharmaceutical company to manage digital scope.
