Is interested in all traditional musics, especially in the music of his region. Has worked and traveled in Latin America, Japan, and many other places as well...

Plays the accordeon, Alp horn, champourgne and hurdy-gurdy.

He likes vacherin d'abondance, le sérac de chèvre, (cheeses), l'Ayse, la Mondeuse, (local wines) la Williamine (local pear brandy) and longeolles.
