Entertainment agencies are brought onboard to help the leisure industry : they can secure the technical aspects of entertainment and book talents, that’s great but I can offer more than that : the experience I was able to gain from being an international performer on stage and backstage, a venue promoter and an international on camera host.

About me


I was born in France,  and started  my career as a club dancer in London back in 1995, I then pursue a brief career as a recruitment consultant and in 2000 I became a fashion model, and an on camera host and actor in Paris.  I then studied dancing, acting and singing. My DJaying career launched in 2007 when I created "Soirée Avenue Montaigne", a networking evening for young socialites. The weekly night took place for 3 years at different venues including Amika, Maya, Mahiki, Cuckoo Club, Bungalow 8, China White and Maddox. I got being commissioned as a DJ by Paris Hilton (UK promotional party of the “British Best Friend” show), Judy Dench and Simon Cowell (“Battersea Dogs & Cats” charity event), Kelly Osbourne (birthday party) or Joan Collins (movie press launch in Mayfair). My music style is uplifting: vocal house, progressive, electro and nu-disco. I was highly influenced by disco music, gospel, 80’s science fiction and French Nouvelle Vague movie soundtracks but also rave music. In 2009 I joined uber famous  “Salvation” DJ team and started touring with the brand in Europe. In 2010 I moved to Ibiza to play at world reknowned club Space and started a residency at El Divino’s with “Carwash” featuring Sister Sledge. This is when I  launched “The wintersound of Ibiza” at Lola’s, the “Sound of Luxury music tour” and the “SoundOfLuxury.TV show”.

The Sound of Luxury TV concept is a music, travel and lifestyle program featuring my experience as a TV host and Dj entertainer at various events and luxury spots throughout the world. The show’s aesthetics revolves around fairytales, involving costumes and dancers. Since its beginning, it took viewers to over 30 locations in Europe, North and South America, the Middle east and the Caribbean Islands.

In 2011 I reached one of my goals by  moving to Hollywood, California.

In March 2012, I was hired by Australia’s Supré retail clothing brand to create a music compilation album to be played in 165 stores across Australia. Recent DJ gigs in the US include “Sound Of Luxury” at W hotel in Silicon Valley , “My Uncle Rafael” worldwide film premiere after party and "Avenue Montaigne on Sunset" at the Standard, Hollywood

In 2016 I left Hollywood to split my time between St Barts - ideally located between Europe and the USA  - and Mexico's :  colorful Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, and superchic Punta Mita on banderas bay. In Mexico I am perfecting my Spanish proficiency.

My fascination for the magic of the Oceans, for Ancient Greek Mythology and for the power of animals living on our planet  lead me to rebrand my Djaying with a  new stage name /  brand / and show called  ELQUARIUS® Elk + Aqua + Aquarius.
