Personal History

Jean was born in France, but spent most of his childhood in Tunisia where his physician father was the director of the Pasteur Institute. The family returned to France a few years after Tunisia gained its independence from France. There, as a young man, he had the unique opportunity to work as personal assistant to Louis Malle, the famed movie director of Au Revoir les Enfants, My Dinner with Andre, Pretty Baby and many other award-winning films. After his move to the U.S., Jean worked as production designer on films shot in Florida and Mexico; and also produced and directed “The Human Voice” by Jean Cocteau at La Mama New York City, one the World’s most important avant-garde theater. Prior to moving to Sarasota, Florida, 34 years ago, Jean had also lived in London, Geneva, Washington D.C. and New York City. (Extracted from Jean’s Website)
