Creative Intelligence Practitioner / Curatorial Director
My interests lie primarily in exploring new value systems that do not really exist based on our present understanding of success and profits and in creating experiential fields and ritualistic formats that engage and superpose different modalities and disciplines.
My curatorial process is mental, spiritual and synthesist in nature led by an affinity with the liminal space allowing for unknown possibilities. It is a balancing act between interconnecting multiple fields, and developing intelligent economies and networked partnerships to influence new channels of distribution with the agency to shift the way we align ourselves in society.
"I am into cultivating prosperity in its purest form.”
My journey started in 2012 with curatorial space Hotel Particulier.
It was prototypical with many trials along great meetings of minds.
I founded Hotel Particulier with the purpose of bringing different fields together to push forth new undefined and transitive formats from the traditional modes of art and commerce exposure. I generated numerous projects at the nexus of art, fashion, design, film, performance and sound with collaborators and artists from the above and underground. Hotel Particulier was at first a discreet curated establishment nestled in an old loading dock in Soho New York before transitioning to a remote curatorial platform in 2015 until 2019.
I also lent my mind to the creation of a residency program in 2018 for creatives and digital entrepreneurs developing sustainable consumer products, with a portion of their time collectively working on a scalable social impact business venture.
"When talents from different fields come together and challenge one another by working towards a common project, unexpected results can happen. Fostering such an environment can be a game changer for our society."
I have taught and lectured about curatorial and creative intelligence practices at Parsons The New School, The Royal College of Art London, and The University of Pennsylvania.
Parsons the New School invited me to develop and teach a course about ‘Designing a Fashion Experience’ and how brands must now lean into the transformation economy to create meaningful physical and digital experiences that transcend value beyond their product or service.
I designed the course as a dual format of lecture/studio prototype; with a polymathic syllabus spanning multiple fields (Contemporary art, art performance, media, digital finance, architecture & design, sound, and creative & curatorial direction)
I offered this elective for two consecutive years (2019-21) at the graduate level, to all schools, to ignite an interdisciplinary approach and an experience of teaming on the fly.
In 2020, I placed my practice in incubation mode and asked myself: how can I be best of service? I took the following decree:
"My true heart desire is to develop new systems of creation with multiple economies and currencies, and to mythologize new stories for our psyche based on super abundance and love instead of scarcity and greed. I look forward to linking my creativity with others and of being of service to create these new fields, to go over the threshold and to lead super human lives on this Earth.”
It is now under our agency.
I am pursuing my creative intelligence practice with the [working title] of under our Agency.art to explore these new fields.
It is a continuous process of refinement, deep listening and heighten presence with a radical self-responsibility, self-leadership and ultimate sovereignty.
My curatorial projects have appeared in publications such as W Magazine, Wall Street journal, Artsy, Surface Magazine, BOF, Visionaire, Musée Magazine, Fast Company, Architectural Digest, Vice and Vogue.
I am a nomad. I hold both French and American nationalities. Prior to leading a nomadic lifestyle, I resided in New York for 20 years until 11/2020.

I sense that long years of preparation for what I do not know have ended. A new destiny is unfolding before me.
