Being graduate in piano at the Conservatory of Neuchatel and in dance at the Jaques-Dalcroze Institute of Geneva (Switzerland) 1982, I am known as comedian, singer, dancer and musician, in Switzerland, in the United States, in Australia and in Holland, where I worked with Josef van den Berg. I perform regularly with various theater companies in Switzerland (like "Spirale", "La Grenouille" and "Les Marionettes de Geneve") and with the singer Roger Cuneo. I also give private lessons and workshops about voice and body expression.
