I’m a photographer from Paris, currently living in Los Angeles.

I’ve received my Master in Fine Arts from HEAR (France) and University of the Arts (Finland), as well as a Master in Political Science from Sciences Po (France).

My work has been featured in solo and group shows in France, Italy, the UK, and the USA. It is part of a French Public Collection. I have been invited for various residencies in France and the US, as well as to present my creative process at The New School-Parsons in New York on several occasions.

When I am not traveling, I call Los Angeles home.
