After obtaining his diploma from the Conservatoire de Lausanne, his native town, he polished his skills in fresh ways finding his way by chance encounters, following his wishes and needs (notably with J.Cl. Blanc and Alberto Lentia). He then played with all types of local groups (quatuor A4, Collège de cuivres de Suisse Romande, solo trumpet player for 15 years with the ORM/Sinfonietta de Lausanne, in the first version of Big band de Lausanne and the baroque trumpet ensemble of Lausanne among others). A real freelancer, he is currently a replacement in the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the ensemble Contrechamps (Geneva) and is occasionally called upon to play in Swiss orchestras (OCL, BSO and St.-Gall). He was regularly requested to play by the NEC and became a permanent member in 2009.
