I was born in 1962 and raised in Cannes, France.
At the age of 20, I decided to try the American adventure, starting
by sailing from my home town Cannes to Ft Lauderdale in 9 months
(click here for more info)
Shortly after being established here in the US, I was drafted in
the French Army, but I did not feel like going back to France for
1 year of French service, so instead I joined the US Army for 3
years.... Not so bad, I was assigned in Hawaii for 2 1/2 years!
Who would complain! We deployed to Korea and Japan, it was a real
nice experience over all...
After that, I went to school and got a job as a technician for Hill-Rom,
a company based in Indiana. Spent a few years with them, taking
care of equipment from one hospital to an other and towards the
end based at Mercy Hospital in Miami.
I started to get interested in this new blooming Internet thing
making my first site and than working part time for JustSurfit where
I got very involved and developed one of the first Live interactive
Video audio and ChatRoom webcast
started from Bootlegger's early 1997.
In September that year, I left Hill-Rom and started working full
time with JustSurfit, operating all the webcams and specialized
in the Live Event Broadcast.
Trying to push this Internet Broadcast further, in Jan 1999 I went
with Online Video Network, a company that specialize in high bandwidth
transfer for live
broadcast and continued now streaming Live video and audio.
In September 1999 OVN basically closed down and Crawford Grimsley,
Brian Slusarz started ProWebcast and I became a partner with them.
This went through the year of the “Dot Com” and like
many others did not make the big $$.
October 2000, I was offered a very nice salary and decided to take
a different road, working for TheHelp.NetWork, helping non-profit
make money using the Internet. About a year later we started MarlinProductions
in Orlando, equipped with 10 production studios and a very nice
Control Room, and In June 2002 they decided to close and sale all
So I am back home in Ft Lauderdale now working for VBC Studios.
is "FiFille" my little girl, I found her by my car one
night and I just had to keep her.... she is been wonderful and always
around me or with me... she now is a full size playful trouble maker.
