Born in March 1969, I began in astronomy at the age of 10.

At 14 years old, I already began the construction of a telescope of 200 mm …

Since then, I realized about fifty instruments of diameters, focal and of different optical configurations.

Fascinated by photography, I was known by means of exhibitions and conferences.

Regularly published in magazines ciel et espace, Astronomie magazine and Astrosurf magazine, I also write numerous articles on the techniques of recording and on the construction of instruments.

I am at present scientific presenter in the Planetarium of Nîmes.
