Digital strategist – Road Rug Cars



Passionate with well-made products, I became interested in arts very early on besides cars. Progressively, I was attracted to design, the missing missing link between cars and arts, so I decided to study art and furniture history. Mixing history, marketing and management,  I graduated with a Bachelor art dealer, cultural mediator and a Master degree in international art business at ICART Paris. Since, I spent 3 years in art market and museum administration working with art dealers, artists and designers, 2 years as Orbout CEO managing a start up team, and 1 year as digital media strategist for Road Rug Cars.
