I was born in France in 1977. After completing my studies on the saxophone, I devoted myself to the baroque oboe and the study of early music. A graduate of the conservatoires in Amsterdam (Bachelor in 2006) and Brussels (Master in 2012), I studied with Alfredo Bernardini and Paul Dombrecht respectively. Since 2005 I have performed and recorded baroque and classical repertoire with ensembles throughout Europe such as:   La Petite Bande, Les Agrémens, Les Muffatti, Lingua Franca, B'Rock , Ricercar Consort, The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, The Helsinki Baroque Orchestra, Trondheim Barokk, Norsk Barokkorkester, Le Concert Français, Les Talens Lyriques, Le Concert Spirituel, Insula Orchestra, Le Cercle de l'Harmonie, Akadêmia, La Grande Ecurie._cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_


As a soloist, I've been performing with the ensembles Alia Mens, Ars Mirabilis, La Cetra d'Orfeo and La Camerata Sferica.


Between 2014 and 2016, I have been teaching early oboes at Oslo's Conservatories (Barratt Due Musikkinstitutt and Norges Musikkhøgskole). I have also been asked as a coach by the Norwegian Wind Ensemble (DNBE), as well as oboe teacher for the 2017 edition of the Nordic Baroque Orchestra in Trondheim. 

In parallel with these activities, I have established an oboe making workshop in Strasbourg and I am attending Alexander Technique teaching seminars.

Since the year 2007, I have settled my own workshop in Strasbourg. I have developped and I play on my own copies of a Thomas Stanesby Sr. bb3b-136bad5cf58d_a Mathias Rockobaur classical oboe at pitch 430.



Between August 2014 and June 2016, I have been teaching historical oboes as a secondary instrument in the two main conservatories in Oslo: at the Barratt Due Music Institute (for the year 2014/2015), and at the NMH (Norges Musikkhøgskole) in 2015 /2016. I have also been invited to work with the Norwegian Wind Ensemble (DNBE) as a coach, as well as for the 2017 edition of the Nordic Baroque Orchestra in Trondheim. 

Since January 2021 I am part of the coaching team for the Orkester Nord Academy in Trondheim, which consists in a series of orchestra sessions on period instruments for young scandinavian performers.
