Tell us a little bit about yourself & what you’re doing in the city?
I?ve worked as a dresser for big names such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and styling for magazines such as Lurve, WAD, and Esquire? I’m now a Visual Merchandiser for Kenzo and a contributor for Modzik magazine.
Where do you go for a really good meal in Paris?
I?m working near ?Rue St. Anne, well known as the Japanese/ Asian street in Paris. I highly recommend Kunitoraya for lunch but I discover on the same street NEST PARIS a small and beautiful Vietnamese canteen where I eat 3 times per week. For tea time, I recommend LE LOIR DANS LA THEIERE a classic their cake are delicious. For a diner with friends KAPUNKA or PAMELA POPO.

What are some things that you’re passionate about in Paris?
CAFES, RESTAURANTS, PARKS & GALLERIES…
On weekends I like to re-discover this city and walk around Le Marais or Pigalle there is always ?lots of new stuff in those areas.
Do you have a favorite market, cinema, theater or florist?
DEBEAULIEU and RAMBERT RIGAUD are the best florists for me. The first shop harbors many weird specimens, I bought Prothea coming from South Africa there and ?now they are favorite flowers. RAMBERT RIGAUD is a former studio director in the ateliers of Yves Saint Laurent, ?what more is there to say…
What’s your favorite area of Paris and why?
Le Marais!!!! That?s my hood LOL First it?s a historic place, a main locality for art galleries and it?s full of trendy restaurants.
What do you enjoy doing on Sundays in Paris?
I have a ritual E-VE-RY Sunday I?m with all my family aunts, cousins, brothers, sisters and nephews. ?We have lunch together fight for more cake, argue about politics and laugh out loud.
Where to experience the best DJ Set or Live Music?
Titty Twister my friends Kiddy Smile and Bart Ivy always spinning there.
As a Parisian we have a lot of prejudice ?about Marseille. But I found out that I was all wrong the ?Marseillais? are so polite, so cool way more than the Parisians (wink).
