Additional Skills

Honorary Member Equity
Active member SFA ( performing artists' union France)

Although I ethically & actively support and defend union
protection of individuals, I have come to terms (my wife runs a benchmark agency, supplying international voice talent, writers, interpretors to the av industry here in France)with realities of budgets.
In our practise, we have learned to listen to our client's expectations, , problems...we get to feel our way through to reach an accord on prices

As a mature practician of yoga, I strive to listen truly to people and to myself by being aware of & living the present. In this way, I do not think too highly of myself; I am not too proud; I am never too satisfied with what I have created.
