The financier in love with surfing.
Originally, I am part French and part Swedish but I was born in New York where I recently returned to live.
This is where I was raised but in a way that was definitely very European: I attended the French school in New York.
As a kid, I spent my holidays in St.Barth, which is where I developed a passion for windsurfing first – at the age of 12 – and later on for traditional surfing.
Surfing has become a part of what I am today: it is a sport, a philosophy and a way to experience nature, interpersonal relationships and holidays…It was for love of this sport, which has a spiritual connotation for me, that I spent some years of my life in California, studying at the Pepperdine University of Malibu.
Today I live and work in New York in the area of finance and insurance. My life has changed a good deal, but my passion for ocean waves has never diminished.
As soon as I manage to get away, I too have my favourite little corner of the world.
Luxury is: time. Having time for doing the things I like most and being with the people I love.
In my suitcase: only and always hand luggage.
A pullover, a swimming costume, an iPod, earphones, my passport and maybe a book…Anything else I need I can find it on my way to the beach.
