For many years I destined myself for a university career. Graduated from a preparatory school in cinema and journalism, I then joined the University Lumière Lyon II in cinema and photography. Right after a bachelor received with honors, I started a Master Degree in Game Design at the University of Montreal to learn more about a growing form or art. I am currently in the second year of a MD in research, writing a thesis about how videogames can raise awareness about real world issues such as environnemental pollution. \r\n\r\nDuring all these years of studies, I have never stopped producing cinematographic and photographic works. I see myself as a seeker of beauty in ordinary life, looking for glimpses of singularitiy in people. Since 2018 I decided to share some of my works. Several photographic series have received international awards: First place at the International Photography Award (IPA) 2018 documentary category for the series Those who wait; Gold Medal at the Tokyo International Photography Award (TIPA) 2018 documentary category for the Passerby series; Awarded the Sony International Photography Award 2018 Social Category; Special mention to the TECHNES prize for young creators for the movie Survivance: Testimonies of War. \r\n\r\nI now wish to devote all my energy to producing documentary films and photos.
