He's spoken at conferences and panels worldwide, from Brazil to Paris and Norway, including SXSW, Midem, CMJ, New Music Seminar, and the World Cultural Economic Forum.

From 2004, he created and directed a pilot office for the European Commission of the European Union: European Music Office, US and served as Director of The French Music Export Office in North America until Jan, 2009. His current mission is creating a system to give music subtitling and dubbing solutions, so that music becomes truly universal and global, through localization. With full implementation of these systems, people will be able to finally understand each other's songs, across languages, in real time.
