A unique cultural and educational background – including training at Tisch School of the Arts – formed a passionate, industrious and confident creative spirit. Someone able to engage and interact comfortably with any personality, and in any environment.
“The childhood I spent acting in the theatre and among a whole family of creatives on both my French and American side exposed me to every type of person, and inspired a great freedom of expression. My
career beginnings, as a photojournalist, also taught me invaluable lessons. From how to work solo, be spont
aneous, and handle confrontation, to how to be objective and clearly convey the essence of a situation and its context.”
For Trombert, every assignment is a vital opportunity. To be passionate and powerfully expressive. To get to the best possible outcome for each client. And to make the whole process in between easy-going and enjoyable for everyone involved.
