ben – We’ll start right away this interview, I said that we are in your office, and it’s very quiet.

ben – So first things first, it’s better … What was your background?
ben – I was born a few years ago now in the Ardennes, in the pretty town of Revin, northern France, on March 22. My mother and father were present. At the time I was happy. My parents also, I think.
The first word of my sire was « I am your father » … The legend began here. Americans have only copy.
I spend the episodes I, II and III to arrive directly to Episode IV.
After studying more than winded, even not very encouraging for the future, I must give a few months of my life to the Nation and I will do my time in the air force (one), where I did not off from my chair as secretary … in a training center.
It is in these dirt office, I found my way … No, I would not be military, I do not like the uniforms, and I was a bad soldier for 10 months. On reflection, it’s almost a pride.
I met in my office a graphic designer. Oh my dear !!
After listening to him and have completed the paperwork that would allow it to go sweet home, we met and he told me about his job.
So I, shortly after my release from national service began training to learn desktop publishing tools. I was soon employed by a small agency in Charleville, where I learned the hard way, the profession of graphic. I did the same graphic 100 times, repeating the rought all night …
Later I went through other agencies, a start-up, Senegal, Djibouti, Paris, Charleville-Mezieres, Neuilly sur Seine (nice land, who lived the famous Nicolas Sarkozy, yes Madame) …
