Before starting hellofrancois.com, a New York-based blog dedicated to menswear and lifestyle, I have been fortunate to live and work in different countries across the globe.

Growing up in a small seaside resort in western France, about four and half hour drive southwest of Paris, I dreamt of life in a big city. After having lived in London, Athens, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Dallas, New York is now home.


Born and raised by a Japanese mother and a French father who met in New York, it is with no surprise that I met my American husband while living in Hong Kong. Bicultural,  multilingual and cosmopolite, I like to say that I came to New York by way of... the world.

Hellofrancois.com was born a year and half ago while living in Dallas with the idea to share all the idiocracies of life in the Big D. Today, it covers a variety of lifestyle subjects including men's fashion, home and travel.


Full-time Trade Advisor at the French Embassy Trade Office in New York, blogger, influencer, social media guru, husband, dad to our two fur babies Lily and Grayson, I wear several hats and I love it.

I hope you will like my blog, and invite you to follow my everyday adventures on Instagram. See below.
