I grew up in a small town near Bordeaux, 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, Nigeria, China… I have filmed, documented, this effusive dance form. I have had the chance to shoot 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 2014, 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 2015, I decided to head towards the field of journalism with the desire to work on projects that were meaningful to me. After several experiences for TV, I had the chance to join the video team of Le Monde in 2016, where I have worked two and a half years. Embedded within the video team, my main role was to direct and produce motion graphics, often on super-tight deadlines. I also got the opportunity to co-direct and edit video explainers, to design and code a new identity for the channel, and to write a couple of stories.
In 2019, I have co-directed a documentary web series with Sheerazad Chekaik-Chaila, produced by Upian, for the french public broadcasting (release: fall 2019).
