The word from La founder : Maxime is unique. It is very difficult to define him in words, he is always on the move, somewhere on the planet, I can barely keep up! I met Maxime in Shanghai back in 2007, when things were still rough and booming at a fast&furious kind of pace. I immediately connected with Maxime because we were alike: Asian skin, French mind. We are called
« Bananas » there, yellow outside, white inside! Maxime has had hundreds of lives, and he is still living them: Photographer, DJ, Event Planner, Video maker, Relentless Traveller. All his life is about creativity and the energy that comes out of it. It is revigorating and inspiring !
