Interest & Leisure

  • Music:
    As far as I recall I have always enjoy music. From singing when I was a kid to learning my first instrument when I was a teenager music has fascinated me along the years. I have started my journey by playing drums, then I learnt how to play guitar and then, since few months, I'm learning piano.

  • Sports:
    I have practiced a lot of different sports during my childhood but the one that hooked me when I was 11 is basket-ball. I've played many many years and still take any opportunities to continue to play. I even created a Basket-Ball club in swiss recently (2016 - 2018). Originally from Annecy, I also love mountain activities (hiking, skiing ...)
