About

My story with moving images has been very much connected with urban dance. From my high years, I have been intimately involved in this movement, as a dancer, and as videographer. From Korea to Sudan, El Salvador, Kyrgyzstan… I have filmed this effusive culture, and I have got the chance to work with some of the best dancers. (…I can still bust a few moves, if you wonder 😎 ).

Alongside this journey, I graduated in motion graphics at Hyper Island Stockholm, and worked freelance from 2009 to 2016, doing a variety of projects including commercials, tv programs, internet videos, non-profit projects… Through my experiences, I have developed a versatile range of skills (shooting, editing, art direction, motion design, 3D, coding).

In September 2016, I have joined the video team of Le Monde. I now split my time between working there, and developing other projects alongside.
