Sabine and I got married since 21 years. We have 3 kids: one daughter aged 19th, very good pianist player, fascinated by the works of Chopin, and twin (one girl, one boy passionate about french bakery), aged 16th. They are all members of Children International Summer Village (CISV) and travel every year as well as they welcome kids home from any country in an exchange program.
Sabine works in the field of Marketing and Communication events and I manage a company owned by us, specialized in Cyber Defense & Security, Risk and Compliance consulting services. I travel throughout the year mainly in Asia.
Our family travels regularly. We love particularly New York where we split each time, some, including Sabine, for the MOMA, me for the MET, Washington to visit our friends in York and the National Gallery, and the American Art section of Philly museum of Art, Chiang Mai in Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Berlin, Vienna, Napoli, Roma, Martinique... Of course, every year, a part of winter time is reserved to ski in the Alps.
As a drummer, I love playing blues, rock, reggae, hardrock but I love to listen to Classical especially Mozart.
Sabine will enjoy reading many novels while I am truly passionate for History of France, notably through its kings, Emperors and wars.
As French family, we love fine french food as well as enjoying a true american hamburger in famous places in New York, or Thai northern style food.
Meeting people of any country, feeling cultural differences and taking some that feeds our needs for openness is a great thing for all members of our family.
We are a mix of different origins: French, English, Sicilian, French Caribbean, in one hand, Polish, Russian and French in the other hands.
We all speaks English to make sure we can always communicate.
