I grew up in a small town near Bordeaux, in South West France.
My first contact with video was through urban dance in 2003. From my high years and throughout my twenties, I have been intimately involved in this movement, as a dancer and a videographer. From Korea to Sudan, El Salvador, Kyrgyzstan … I have filmed, documented, this effusive dance form. I have had the chance to work with some of the best dancers in the world and also many of the hidden talents in countries you’d least expect to have dancers. (…I can still bust a few moves if you’re wondering 😎 ).
Alongside my dance journey, I studied multimedia and design. I began working as a freelancer from 2009 to 2013, doing a variety of projects including commercials, broadcast design, internet videos, non-profit projects… Through my experiences, I have developed a versatile range of skills and familiarity with all levels of production. (Shooting, editing, art direction, motion design, 3D, coding).
In 2014, I decided to head towards the area of journalism with the wish of working on projects that were meaningful to me. After several experiences for TV (Envoyé Spécial, Complément d’Enquête, Le Grand Journal…), I had the opportunity to join the video team of Le Monde in 2016.
After two years there, I just left, and I am currently developing a documentary series with Upian for France Télévisions and France Médias Monde.
