Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a small village, by the sea, in Normandie, France.
Who has influenced you?
So many people have influenced me. To mention one only, in high school, I met a girl, Julie. She seemed to see life in a rather poetic way, while I was very much rational. As a result, her world seemed so much more complex, both prettier and more difficult, and I think that really intrigued me. Still today, I try to steer towards that vision of the world – more poetic and complex – although at core I think I live in a pretty reasoned version of life.
I love art! I believe in art. I think beauty and art matter and I’m so happy to work for an organization that celebrates and shares them.
What was the first TCA event you attended?
A movie, probably? I first came to Taos in the summer of 2017 and I’m pretty sure we went to the TCA then! The first event I actually remember is coming to see JoJo Rabbit. Somebody close to me just loved that movie and brought us all to see it three times.
What inspires you?
What else do you love about Taos?
I like the rootedness of the community, and I am so humbled by it.
Who’s your favorite Taos artist?
I’ve discovered so many Taos artists recently. I really like Sarah Parker’s work; her vision and her sense of community inspire me!
Favorite music or musician?
I love Tom Waits.
There are many. “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which was adapted by Robert Mulligan, is one of them. I love Scout.
Tell us something about you that nobody knows.
For the past couple years, I’ve been wanting to learn how to play bass. That’s a poor secret, as it hasn’t lead to any action.
