I received a global naval architecture education at Southampton Solent University. I managed to develop hydrodynamics, structural and naval architecture skills. Along the course, between individual and group project I had been in role with different task and position. I reinforced all of this by my internship in France for Francois Lucas as a naval architect.
By the end of my course, I had been employed by Tony Castro ltd. I made use of my education and my previous experience. I developed the modeling talent I acquired during my internship. I worked with some of the best and world famous car designers. I received an advanced training by Robert Mc Neel for rhino modeling tools. Therefore I was given the responsibility of many modeling tasks, superstructure, concept model… I managed to bring modern features keeping the boats as easy as safe to sail. I provided excellent products on time and under budget. I finally worked on a 62 ft flybridge motor yacht. I designed the boat by improving constantly GA, concept and features …This was a team project where designers, engineers and architects shared their skills to create a high luxury yacht.
Later I had been offered a stylish designer and 3d modeler position at BMT Nigel Gee. I was in charge of the concept design department. I was constantly using my skills in Rhino do develop feasible and outstanding superyacht concept for clients. I was acting at any stage of the design process to maximize the impact of literature with my renderings. I was handling complex geometry and improving general 3d understanding of people. I was helping the engineering department by producing 5 axis milling and metal cutting machine 3d files. I was optimizing naval and interior architecture by checking in 3d the real world feasibility. This was also an outstanding experience in terms of standardization of work and efficiency organization.
Then I went back to France where I became independent and had been producing innovative solutions providing modern visions through three major yacht design competition such as the Young Designer Superyacht Awards, the Next Sly Contest and the Kelt/Cognac Competition. I finished finalist of all and proved my naval architecture and yacht design track record. I have been spending time in learning on new green features and hybrid solutions. I have attracted a large amount of media attention from magazines and web sites across the world praising my works for their quality of innovation, aestheticism, and technical feasibility.
A year later, I was asked by Ted Hood Yachts to come over in US and help them producing some new lines of boats, including Motorsailers, Coastal and Expedition Explorers ranging from 42 to 125ft. This was a really interesting experience as a head yacht designer. I was constantly in contact with many contractors and various supplier companies in order to produce the most challenging projects. As a naval architect I produced a lot of research on hydrodynamic performances and sea keeping capabilities. I undertook numerous improvements, combining upgraded aesthetic appeal with enhanced performances, capabilities and practicality.
Further to this experience I am working for Sunreef Yachts in Poland. Working for the No 1 in the world of luxury catamarans, I am in charge of various project over 24 metres. My tasks includes management of the different departements, structural engineers, systems engineers… Constantly improving the project and the construction feasibility, I work closely with the yard and as a team we all make sure we guarantee the best quality ever.
