Hi, I’m Olivier and I’m a
Street photographer / Designer / Entrepreneur
One day when I was a kid, I went in my parent’s room. Because I was naturally curious my eyes went directly to DVD my dad brought home to watch. I don’t remember the name of the movie, I don’t remember any actor, and I have never seen the movie. However, I flipped to the DVD case and read something along the lines of “[the main character] sought adventure because he realized he did not want to die without having lived”. These words affected me more than I can count.
I’m all about creativity, marketing & travel. I travel the world, raising my kids, building business & makin’ pictures along the way.
