Since then, he has authored several publications on contemporary art, pop culture, and fashion. His passion for the Golden Age of French cinema (1930s and early 1940s) was the starting point for an interest in the timeless genres of gangster films, war movies, westerns, and romantic comedies. He lives in France.
