Chief engineer, then captain on the drilling rigs’ supplies in Africa, he has also been in charge of a navigation’s company agency in Cameroun. His attention then turned to nautical charters where he worked as a skipper on many boats everywhere around the world.
Attracted by the Pacific, he settled in Tahiti and created the API YACHTING company: a naval repair building site with sail and cable-making services. He created a service for large units haul out at the PAPEETE Slipway and dry dock where large yachts (Maltese Falcon, FetutTéa, Askaris, Sorsha, etc) did their refit. He thus gained a good knowledge in solving mega-yachts’ problem and their specific needs. He now offers his services in Noumea and together with Jean-Marie DEMARET created the NYS company which objective is to bring to mega-yachts the best and thoroughly exhaustive range of services.
