First of all, I am a Singer, Vocal coach, Talent Scout, and a travel lover.
What is the best thing that I love about my work? What I love about my work is the constant contact with artists from all over the world, the discovery of new forms of talent, musical styles, other ways to use the voice, and incredible emergent talents, and the fulfilling experience of transmitting knowledge.
What is my idea of perfect happiness? My idea of perfect happiness is to feel myself useful, to know that I have created new connections between artists that will be able to create beauty together.
What is my greatest fear? My greatest fear is to lose my hearing
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? Overthinking sometimes, most of all trying to anticipate people’s reactions. I call it my boiling brain.
What is my greatest extravagance? Starting a new life in another country at 28, and the fact that I am about to do it again at 42.
On what occasion would I lie? I would lie only to avoid hurting someone that I love.
What is the influence of role models, in my work and in my life? What influences me is to see passion as a motor in people’s life, when they love and enjoy what they do, and when they master their art but always keeping themselves in learning mode. The most inspirational people are those who think there is always something new to learn and achieve.
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? When I do not get a result in a coaching session with a Singer. It makes me really unhappy and makes my brain boil.
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? I was the happiest in my work while travelling with my teammate around the world to do auditions and discover new cultures and new foods.
If I could, what would I change about myself? If I could, I would love to change my tendency to be lazy.
What is my greatest achievement in work? My greatest achievement is to make an artist happy, giving him some more tools to sing freely, or offering him a contract after an audition.
What is my most inspirational location, in my city? I love walking in the park next to my house with my dog, listening to music, and watching the river flow.
What is my favourite place to eat and drink, in my city? In a park, for a picnic, with a good red wine.
Who is my greatest fan, sponsor, partner in crime? My dad would be my greatest fan, I inherited his sense of curiosity, the habit of asking why always, and the desire to transmit and teach.
Whom would I like to work with in the future? I would love to work with Bobby McFerrin, in order to learn more about my voice, and jazz improvisation.
What project, in the nearby future, am I looking forward to work on? I am developing right now a new project of vocal technique workshops in Latin America, as well as working on translating the French vocal pedagogy that I use when teaching. It is the biggest challenge of my life so far.
