Born in Switzerland in 1976, with dual German and Swiss nationality. Obtained a 'diplôme de générale littéraire' and trained as a precision mechanic before sitting the 'diplôme HES de designer industriel' at the Ecole Cantonale d'Art, Lausanne in 2002.

Several years' assistantship in lecturing and research at the ECAL then followed; at the same time he began working as an independent designer. Began to participate more and more in international trade shows and exhibitions in renowned institutions ; also began working with international brands - all of which confirmed definitively the rightness of his chosen path.

Today, both his position as lecturer at the ECAL and the opening of his product design agency d'Esposito & Gaillard encapsulate his chosen professional direction.
