He left his country at the age of 13 to study with Daniel Lommel in Bourges, earning a grant from the Onassis Foundation. His professional career began at the age of 17 with the Aenanon Company. He then joined the Ballet of the Rhine Opera, the Grand Théâtre in Geneva and the Lyon Opera Ballet, performing in many principal and soloist roles.
