I left my native small town in France at age 18 and moved to London with a one way ticket and 100 pounds in my pocket.

Little did I know I would be hired by a record label only one week after my arrival. At A&M Records, I started by working in the Mailroom and was often in charge of record deliveries to BBC and Capital radio. Read more>>
