What I do

I produce, edit and design news videos and documentaries, with a focus on visual investigations.

My videos frequently attempt to explain complex information, or intricate situations, sometimes with limited footage available. To do so, I often lean on my twelve years background in motion design. But my work can also include research, writing, reportage, art direction, video editing, 3D modeling, coding…

My main aspiration is to take part in publishing meaningful stories, in the public's best interest.

Background

My first contact with video was through breakdance, in 2003. From my teenage years and throughout my twenties, I have been intimately involved in this movement, as an average dancer, and mainly as a videographer. Unexpectedly, this teenager's passion took me to more than 35 countries, from Korea, to Brazil, China, Nigeria… I worked with some of the best dancers in the world, and also with hidden talents in places like El Salvador, Qatar or Sudan.

Alongside my dance journey, I studied digital media & visual design at Bordeaux-Montaigne University and Hyper Island Stockholm. I began working as a freelance multimedia designer in 2009, working for design studios, production companies, in diverse regions and contexts.

In 2016, I decided to take a light turn toward journalism, with the desire to work on projects that were meaningful to me. Soon I joined the video team of Le Monde, where I worked two and a half years as a lead motion designer. Beside motion graphics, I had the opportunity to edit a number of  news explainers, to design and code a new visual identity, and to produce a couple of stories.

Since 2019, I have worked for various media outlets including Mediapart, Upian, The New York Times Opinion, BBC Africa Eye, and the research collective Forensic Architecture.
