I was born in Lyon, 21st of February, 1976. I worked ten years as social worker and teacher. I could touch several different cultures and get richer as a human being. But I missed terribly the creative process, I felt I needed to take another way. So I took classes of professional photography and I worked for the press, notably for Télérama and GéoAdo, but also for some organisations like The League Against Cancer and The City of Paris. My choise of getting close to photography was really thought, because I knew that if I wanted to make movies I had to knew and understand before the visual language. I kept doing photography but at the same time writing screenplays, both for short and feature films. I tried several screenplay contests till the day a door was open. My screenplay of the short movie « Jours Intranquilles » won the first prize of the SIRAR found at the International Film Festival of Aubagne. I was going to direct my first movie on a professional level. 2016 - Jours Intranquilles (short) 2017 - Terrain Vague (short)
