Contact Details

Omokoroa, Tauranga


    I am originally from France, being in New Zealand since 2018 with permanent residency, country I visited in 1999 and felt in love.
    I worked as scuba diving instructor ( with underwater videographer and photo specialties) mostly in Maldives (between 1995 and 2015) with over 6000 dives in this beautiful underwater world, and Turks and Caicos (2000 to 2002).
    I am the share holder with my ex wife of Dolphin Seafaris in Tauranga, but am not involved in the business any more.
    I just came back from the south island where I was the Discovery Centre Manager for Southern Discoveries in Milford sound, to be closer to my children who live in Tauranga.
    I love the sea, the nature and like to take photos and videos.

    Industry Experience

    I worked 2 seasons for a French real TV program called “Operation seduction in the Caribbean”, where I work in the logistic department, finding the boats for candidates as well as the staff. Finding locations in the Caribbean, organising the equipment, staff, and all sort of logistics. I also did the underwater filming with my own equipment during the 1 month filming.
    In the Maldives I did 9 seasons working as a guide and filming during cruises, then editing to present a video at the end of the cruise to our guests.
    I did also a Videographer training in Paris at the famous INA (Institut National of Audiovisual) to gain more experience as cameraman (done in 2004).
