ABOUT

I was born in New York City in 1977, to a French father and a Mexican mother. I speak English, French and Spanish. 

 

I’ve been playing the bass since 1993 and making a living as a bass luthier since 1998.

 

I was lucky enough to get my start in lutherie in New York as an apprentice in David Gage's shop, where I worked until 2001.

 

Subsequently, I worked for Bob Beerman in North Carolina.

 

In 2011, after many years with Bob, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to start my own shop, where I served thousands of clients, from students to members of the San Francisco Philharmonic.

 

In the summer of 2018, I moved my shop to Toulouse, France. I also worked, both in France and in London, designing and building double basses with Robert Brewer Young.

 

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about your instrument.
