I'm a Paris based creative multitasker who's passionate about everything analog, French literature, and food. 

All my shoots are very natural and fun so that my subjects feel comfortable in front of the camera. With over 7 years of experience shooting film, I have developed a personal, soft and nostalgic style which aims to render emotions. 

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
-web design
