Let the 21st century be the beginning of a new era, one of hope and peace throughout the world.

During my free time, I am an artist-painter, musician, photographer, author, and a music journalist : I review cd's and concerts and interview artists for some magazines and I have my own radio show in Brussels ("Jazz Station" on BRUZZ) (formerly "Jazz My Azz" on Radio Panik).
I am also a professional photographer (music and fashion) and an author (especially biographies of musicians).
I lost my heart in Africa in 2007 when I was sent to Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) by "Africalia" to teach young journalists how to review the jazz festival. I have a constantly increasing link with Africa : I am a member of several organizations that struggle for a united Africa.
In Harlem-NYC I connect young jazz musicians to managers and clubs. In NYC, I am often invited in radio shows to present new European jazz releases.
In 2002, I wrote a book about Belgian jazz ("The Finest in Belgian jazz).
