He took his first gymnastics class at the age of six. This marked the beginning of sixteen years of intensive practice that played a major role in his education. He discovered dance at the age of nineteen. From 1999 to 2001, he studied at the CNDC (centre national de danse contemporaine) in Angers. At the same time, and in connection with his career as a performer from 2002 to 2008 (Cie Fattoumi-Lamoureux, Cie Christiane Blaise, la Chaudière Intime, Cie Lanabel, Cie Scalène…), he came particularly interested in sound and lighting. In 2008, he took an all-purpose technician (sound, lights, and backstage) course at the Ecole supérieure GRIM EDIF in Lyon.
