My self-summary
I am originally from Montpellier in the South of France. I came to California in the summer of 1990, fell in love with the Bay Area and never left! I am the father of a terrific 6 year old boy. Love being a father! Having a child made me grow like a weed! I had my years of being often called a " wild Frenchman " Living a clean and sober life today, I can see life from a different angle, loving this new healthy lifestyle! Living in the present is something I enjoy enormously. Trying to find balance in between career, family time, travels, learning to be easier on myself and appreciate the person I became. I have 2 small tattoos in honor of my son, I can appreciate this body art form..just had another one done a few weeks ago, in relation to spirituality and to honor my African roots (Born in Ivory Coast)
What I’m doing with my life
SMILE...and not take things for granted.
I was living in Sonoma county for many years and just relocated to the Grass Valley area to be closer to my 6 years old son. I am a photographer and digital artist, worked a lot with equine subjects, Arabian horses since 94, covering events, races in the US and all around Europe... into portraiture, dancers photography and art at the moment. I also ran a house painting company for almost 10 years and continue to do a little bit of the trade here and there but having the camera in my hand is way more enjoyable than a brush and roller :) I like working for myself and challenges, enjoy being a dad, trying to figure out what makes my son happy, curious, trying to find healthier ways of living, more meaning to daily life, facing my hopes and fears, learning to appreciate more what life brings to me, to be more grateful for having an amazing family and some strong friends, learning, learning .. "My politic is to be an artist" For the past 2 years, I have been photographing a lot of belly dancers as well as Burlesque events. I have met a lot of wonderful friends in the process, a community I am in touch with on a regular basis.

Spirituality is also a big part of my daily life and Reiki is also something that came into my life these past few months, a new interest.

Motorcycle riding is something BIG in my life, I have been riding since I was 14, got the bug and still ride today but more carefully, so my son keeps his dad around for years to come!

Kumba is my spiritual name...:)
I’m really good at
Being loyal, having integrity and humility ( was raised that way), showing affection in public like holding hands etc...opening doors/ being a gentleman, Living life without smoking, drinking alcohol or any kinds of drugs, not taking myself seriously and make women laugh, good with my hands, making my own clothes, good artistic sense and very creative, could not imagine living without creativity really! Good with a camera in my hands, color matching / design, not following the main stream, coming up with ideas...kissing I have been told...but I would let you be the judge of that if life takes us there, making good yummy salads and dressing! Finding good day trip destinations! being a good father to my son ( that is my number one priority!!), knowing the difference between " making love" and just having sex :) good at playing many musical instruments...

The six things I could never do without
My son, friends, motorcycle riding (I ride as often as possible, at least a couple times a week), warm weather, connection to my family, photography, meditation, creativity...yes, more than 6 indeed!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my son and how I could be the best possible father to him, Motorcycle riding destinations, creativity, where I will be in life in a year from now, when this economy will come back..doesn't look like any time soon, how I can help to make a difference in the world, why a lot of people forget to smile, when education will be more appreciated and receive more funds so we can keep the next generation going
