She has an unconditional love for music, ever since her childhood. She began theater, and voice lessons early, first with a three-year course at the Jean-Laurent Cochet school. Later, she joined different theater companies such as The Cadran company and Les Mille Chandelles. She worked in Jacques Mougenot’s operette « Deux timides à la clé », and she joined the Bidiboum Quartet, a vocal quartet accompanying on piano. (Je ne suis pas Claire si elle chantait dans un quartet accompagné du piano, ousi c’est elle qui jouait au piano- et j’ai dit qu’elle jouait le piano)

She trained in composition and arrangement at The Schola Cantorum School with several teachers from the Berklee College of Music.  She set up a musical adaptation of « L’aigle à deux têtes » by J. Cocteau, and later, a piano-vocal repertoire with her pianist David Manara, giving birth to the duo “French Kiss From Paris.”

She continued to master her skill and became a ninja of patterns, and a samurai of fittings ...One thing lead to another ; gradually, she saw herself needed in a variety of shows, films, and operas. In order to prepare for these new adventures, she did what was necessary, first a top-secret espionage assignment at Microsoft, later an internship at NASA and lastly Karate Kid versus origami.
