Previously based in Paris, I am a creative multitasker who's passionate about everything analog currently living in California. 

With over 8 years of experience shooting film, I have developed a soft and nostalgic style. My photography aims to produce whimsical images which translate both carefree emotions and playful complicity.

I post daily over here, and write monthly over there

I spent 5 years working in content marketing and strategy for big brands, including Tinder, CANAL+, Paris 2024, L'Oréal and S.Pellegrino, at two of Paris's top media companies: Le Fooding and My Little Paris. Today, I have decided to dedicate my time and skills to independent projects in order to further explore my creativity.


I was lucky to grow up between three continents (Europe, Asia and Africa) and to receive both a French and an English education at highly selective institutions, which have made me very rigorous. I graduated from the University of Oxford in 2017, with a first class degree in French Literature. 


I love to solve problems. This means I always go out of my way to learn new skills or hack the ones I already got in order to find creative and well designed solutions. You can turn to me for:
-brand and content strategy
-analog and digital photography
-art direction
