He has won several medals at world championship level coxing the French national team, and is also a Henley finalist with the University of Lyon. Rowing quickly became the source for his passion for photography. Independent, curious and open-minded, he enjoyed stays in Scotland, Mexico and India to enlarge and develop his artistic vision. This year, he is continuing to improve his technique by covering different sports, whilst studying cinema as a postgraduate student at the University of Edinburgh. Of course, he is continuing to cox student-based crews.
