After 10 years in the music industry, where she played several roles such as music supervisor for films and ads, executive producer, and new business manager, she had the idea to develop a market place between artists and public to scale artistic projects.
She designed KissKissBankBank alongside Vincent Ricordeau and Adrien Aumont to introduce artists to a new experience, one that is founded with exchanges, feelings, and creation.
It all started very early for Adrien. As he left school at the age of 14, he has worked in cinema and TV shows. Then, he has created a buzz marketing agency called epidemiK, which led him to become creative-executive in the ad industry.
Always been passionate for music and fascinated for the recent mutations happening in this industry, he decided to take part in these day-to-day changes.
On KissKissBankBank, he invites you to also be part of this ongoing mutation. His role is to help every creator to enhance their projects.
