A professional saddler, I fabricate leather objects such as bags, cases for ancient musical instruments and also work often in historic reconstitution, demonstrating leather work in a 15th century setting during medieval festivals or castle visits (Gruyères, Grandson, Haut-Koenigsbourg…)
My experience of navigating is good as I have been sailing on Lake Geneva since the age of 10, participating 7 times in the 'Golden Bowl' on the ship 'Emotions' belonging to Mr Zanerelli. I have also sailed in the region of the Lofotens, once in Autumn and the following year in winter, on the 'Anna Rogde', a 36metre, 130 years old sailingschooner.
I play the bagpipes and the flute with the Celtic-Rock band 'Pao', who interpret traditional and folk music.
I have worked as a diver, as an actor and extra more or less everywhere
in the world with the company 'Aquateam' who produce films and documentaries
concerning marine animals.
Ethnologist by education, I also cook, am a musician and writer. The writing of a book on the Viking presence in Spain is the source of my motivation to board this Knarr so that I can experience for myself what these northern merchants went through during the Middle Ages.
I travelled the road to Compostella alone, later with my donkey Kalima for company, playing the bagpipes as a means of survival along the 5000 Km of this journey.
"A fleur de terre" (in French only)
Costumes maker and illuminated letters painter, I came because I share
with François and Julien their passion for reconstitution and past times,
but also to join the captain who is my life partner.
I am the new crew-member on "Fenrir"! Usually I work to the confection of accessories and pieces of historical and "fantastic" dresses (leather, woven...).
So I have left Broceliande, the legendary forest in Brittany
- where I live - to keep to the side of the Irish coasts. I have already
the island by land, now I'll be discovering it by sea...
