Ta philosophie de vie?
Fais ce que tu aimes. Aides les autres. Mesures toi par rapport non pas au succès mais au nombre de gens que tu impactes. N’emmerdes pas les autres. Vis. Repousses les limites du possible au lieu d’essayer l’impossible. Respectes le choix des autres.

Ta passion?
Etudier les différents comportements humains, la psychologie, comment tout est relié,
“seeing the big picture and making the world smaller”.

Ton Inspiration?
Les gens qui créent des start-ups en Afrique m’inspirent, ceux qui font du théatre dans la brousse en Australie, Francois l’embrouille, la vie de Leonard Di Vinci, Baumgartner, Jim Carey, Oliver Stone, la vie de Charlie Chaplin, Ardisson, Obama, les jeunes qui apprenent à programmer à 10 ans, tout ce qui est unique, iconoclaste, différent. Claude François, Joe Dassin, Aznavour, Marvin Gaye.

Ton projet coup de coeur et pourquoi?

Comiques Sans Frontières. Faire rire des enfants dans les pays pauvres et leur montrer qu’on peut utiliser le rire pour se sentir mieux et comme dé-stressant. J’ai fais cela dans plusieurs pays du monde, après on revient et beaucoup de choses nous paraissent ridicules.

Tes endroits favoris à LA?
Hollywood @Runyon Canyon, Santa Monica @Main Street, Venice @Abbot Kinney, Malibu @Moonshadow.

Merci pour ce petit moment très sympathique et très inspiré Arnaud!
