I am a professional guitarist, composer, and educator originally from Paris but now based in Boston, MA. I received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Professional Music. I have studied with Mick Goodrick, Rick Peckham, Darren Barrett and many more. I have toured with jazz master Chris Cheek in 2017 and performing in renowned clubs such as at Dizzy's Club Cola in New York City and the Side Door in Old Lyme Inn.
