Stay tuned and check out the traditional LetKiss interview with the Proust Questionnaire with Wilson :

The principal aspect of my personality

My openness to others rich of my invulnerable optimism

What I appreciate most about my friends

We grow up without losing sight of each other. Our children too.

My main fault

My loneliness

My favorite occupation 

What I am doing and juggling today : Create, produce, orchestrate and share.

My dream of happiness

Create a visionary cultural center in the suburbs

What would be my greatest misfortune 

To not find the place where I belong to.

I lived it already twice in my life :

1- At France O – And I went away.

2- At the Theater of the illusionist Elizabeth Czerczuk at Nation, Paris. A case study for life to understand what  must never be done.

What I should like to be 

What am I !

The country where I should like to live

Where I am.

My favourite colour


The flower that I like

Black Rose

My favorite bird

The gift of nature that I would like to have
