I have been in marketing and building lean teams for the past 15 years.
I started as a Commercial Photographer and made it up within a few years at the age of 20 to Harper's Bazaar, Marianne magazines and commercial project shootings. I was initially hired at the age of 18 by the first model agency (on the day of my birthday ...
"Hey, you look young, are you 18?" "yea, just today...",
"Great! You start tomorrow!").
Shortly I developed a unique personal brand, became famous and was recognized on the streets, giving interviews in magazines. By the age of 20, my work has been shown in media like Harpers Bazaar or Marianne.
I didn't want to stop there, and due to my love for marketing & management, I quickly grew into a Marketing manager (later Deputy Director) for Kérastase Institute Paris, and I have been managing all marketing activities and 60 employees for over five years on the local and international market. By that time, being in charge of marketing was my daily bread and butter, together with regular business management activities.
