He worked in Haiti, the United States and France as a French professor, Theology professor, consultant, and project coordinator. He is involved in several organizations and committed to several associations.

From 1996 to 2003 he was president of “Collectif Haiti de France” wich publishes news from Haiti , petition speeches and encourages support for development projects. He was a member of the France – Haiti Bilateral Commission, Follow-up Committee, Member. He was one of the founding members of “Coordination Europe-Haiti” a group of NGO’s working on projects with Haiti and of the Franco – Haitian Association (PAFHA )

Telegrand made his entry in cultural production with music. Author, composer and singer he published his first album of religious hymns in 1986 entitled “Rankont ak Jezi” (meeting with Jesus) with the help of a group named Menestrels.

“AYITI CHIMEN LINYON”, 1997 – Album Audio in Audio Cassettes: Creole and French Catholic Songs – Composer and Artistic Director. Productions: Haïti Soleil d’Espérance

“LAISSER DANSER LES COULEURS”, 2000 – Album Audio in CDs : Creole and French Catholic Songs – Composer and Artistic Director. Productions: Haïti Soleil d’Espérance
A fan of John Littleton whom he had the privilege to meet twice, Talegrand publishes in 2000, with the continued help of the Pax Christi group, a colorful album rightfully entitled “Laissez danser les couleurs” (let the colors danse). Those two albums were sold in France to benefit the works of “Haiti Soleil d’Esperance” with “klib Ti Moun Kè Kontan” (Happy Children’s Club” an organization that welcomes abused children in the areas of Verrettes to promote their professional and social integration

« KORIJE », 2007- Album Audio in CDs : Creole Songs – Composer and Artistic Director. Productions: Talegrand NOEL
Between may 2006 and may 2007 with the collaboration of Konsey National Finansman Popilè (National Counsel for rural financing), The European Union and Oxfam Angleterre, Telegrand Noel spent the year planning and setting up an office to provide services and support to peasant’s organizations . It is in analyzing the country’s conditions an after having been asked by the minister of social affairs to support the construction of social centers for destitute children that he was inspired to produce the socially directed album “korije”(change) . The purpose was to raise awareness on the violence, the crimes, the lack of peace, the conditions of destitute street children, the importance of school and education, the need for a change of heart and mind to move forward in the right direction. The album begins with an excellent piece particularly addressed to the Diaspora to encourage them to raise their children’s awareness on the reality of their country of origin and invite them to participate in rebuilding efforts. Because “Lakay se Lakay” (home is always home). The piece entitled “Di yo” (Tell them) is the result of the artist encounter with a group of young adults that avidly questioned him about their roots, the history of Haiti as part of a research he was conducting on the Haitian community living in South Florida with the Archdiocese of Miami. This album also contains a medley of two songs that are a vibrant tribute to the courage of Haitian mothers.
Telegrand became a folkloric singing preacher to offer the public a more vibrant and rousing music with enchanting and joyous melodies as if to make it easier to absorb the weightiness of the issues expressed. To do so he surrounded himself with talented artists such as:
 Isabelle Saint-Hilaire and Mireille Zamor whose voices speak to the heart and to the guts
 Georges Bertrand a guitar expert whose outstanding abilities are reminiscent of Carlos Santana
 Wesner Saint-Louis, the greatest Haitian drummer of the time
 Dickens Princivil, a cello player admired for his talent
 Jean Remy Clerveaux who plays the keyboard as easily as he breaths
 And several other musicians whose creativity made a real jewel of this album

He is now working on publishing other CD’S.
