In the beginning

As far back as I remember, I've always been interested in monsters and weird creatures (how original!) In a time where mobile phones or the Internet were things that didn't exist, I was doing my own experiments and tried products that I could afford, on my own. Fast-forward : From 2001 to 2004, I went to London to get a job as an FX technician. First I was a simple employee, then I became supervisor of the Foam Lab at Soft Options, London. I also was in charge of the mouldmaking lab as well as setting up foam latex kits for various customers. Over the years, I have been working for British and American productions : Falstaff, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Harry Potter, Alexander, Brothers Grimm... for companies such as Aardman, Limbs & Things, the BBC, Jim Henson's Creature Shop to name a few.

And now


In 2009, I came back to England to work on The Wolfman for Millennium Fx. I then started to work on tv series such as Dr Who, Sarah Jane Adventures, Being Human, and many other Tv shows, still for Millennium Fx.

Over the years I have been working on several movies, for several companies/studios : Prometheus, Wrath of the Titans, Hercules, Avengers 2 amongst others.

Lately, I have started teaching about foam latex, sculpture, mould making...: In France (Metamorphoses, Strasbourg), in Switzerland (DBFX, Geneva), in the UK (Bournemouth University, Bournemouth ; Neill Gorton Prosthetic Studio, Chesham and then Aylesbury, until 2016).
