Malibu, California, United States · Joined in November 2013

I came from France to the US in 1979. and moved from Manhattan to Malibu in 94.That year, I bought a beautiful celebrity house in Malibu and remodeled it in a style of "South of France meets old Malibu". I lived 13 happy years there. In 2007, I moved to Los Angeles. I own a digital marketing agency here in Los Angeles, and enjoy the terrific weather and nature around this vibrant city. Since 2005, more than 200 guests have stayed at the Malibu property, including many celebrities, and left many positive reviews.
In 2015, I acquired 2 properties in LA, one in mid-City and the other near the Culver City Arts District. Both are beautiful homes, available for short-term rental. I very much enjoy welcoming guests from all around the world, and hearing that they enjoyed their stay!
I look forward to your visit!
