Jean-Baptiste studied political science and intended to become a journalist, but he finally chose freedom and precariousness with his first job with an independent film festival. He accumulated different work experience in the documentary field (sound engineer, radio documentarist, assistant director, etc.) before giving in to the temptation of creating a production company, La Soci.t. des Apaches. He is a Eurodoc graduate (2017), and teacher of audiovisual and digital media at Grenoble University.
