Michel obtained his formal education at the Sorbonne University and the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris. He combines a range of creative talents, including practical experience in sales/marketing, publishing, event planning, and producing. Michel developed and published Accents on Hair, an affluent bilingual beauty industry periodical that is available in 30 states and 10 countries, not long after relocating to New York. Within a month of publication, Michel’s first edition sold 30,000 copies, making it a notable success.
The 9-11 atrocities forced his building to stand dormant for seven months, and Michel realized it was time to change course because the print media was rapidly shrinking. Michel launched International Event and Media Consulting in 2004, a micro-investment business with an emphasis on the event, video, publishing, and marketing sectors.
This resulted in the founding of VSN Media in 2010, a marketing company with a focus on the creation of videos for the beauty, fashion, health, and luxury lifestyle industries. The ECO channel was created using their high level of competence in content development in order to become the first “green” multimedia channel in the USA.
