I was graduate guide in 2009. I studied in Narbonne and after graduation I realized how attached I am to this land of adoption… The Cathar country has a wild charm like no other. History is omnipresent here, in the smallest village, there are treasures from another time.

For as long as I can remember, I have always been interested by art and aesthetics.

I started drawing and painting during my childhood, the pleasure was to share with my loved ones… My journey then led me to art schools. My specialty: “art in the city.” After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Plastic Arts I discovered the profession of guide. I knew right away that I was going to like it.

A family story

I grew up lulled by the epic battle stories told by my father or through my grandfather’s poeticly delicate stories, but I never imagined that I would one day be so captivated by this profession of storyteller of history.

Finally, being a guide brings together what I aspire to. Marvel at the beauties that surround us, whether in architecture, nature or history, and share it with visitors from all walks of life.

It is in fact to broaden these horizons that I became polyglot, and I now practice English and Spanish. It is the strength of experience that allows me to use my creativity to meet new challenges and create new approaches to heritage. I use my artistic skills and passion to push the boundaries of cultural mediation with humour and good humour. Don’t hesitate, contact me.
