What were you doing before Findoc?
I was born in the south of France, left school at 16 and started working with my dad’s plumbing business. I came to London in November 2004, but after being scammed I was left with no papers and no money and was living on the street.
Eventually I received help from a church and got a job as a market seller in Camden market. In the end I got two market stools and then started a shop in Queensway. I wanted a change so started working as a waiter in celebrity nightclubs. I became a maître d'hôtel serving premier league footballers and rich people in huge clubs. I spent five years doing that, working over the summer in Saint-Tropez. It was fun, I was enjoying it but it did not satisfy me, I wasn’t learning anything, it wasn’t very meaningful.
