What was your very first job? What does it feel like to look back at it now?

I was a training manager for luxury socks, still have the same enthousiasm about  beatiful sophisticated products.

Please describe, in your own words, what your current job is and what work it entails.

My duty in Paris is to internationalize and modernize a traditional french premium lingerie brand , AUBADE. This means high creativity, innovation and permanent change management by keeping the real brand values, which is a faszinating  challenge.

How did you discover that the creative world is right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? Which train of events did bring you to where you are today?

Creativity is everywhere,  everytime , creativity is life, do not remember when I realized this.

In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how and where do you usually find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant?

Curiosity in life.

 If you had to pick one piece of work or project that you are most proud of, especially for the creative work and innovation it required rather than its recognition or industry success, what would it be?

The seamless pure tight of Wolford
