Bio

Originally from France, I studied in BA in Media Production in Germany, at the University of Applied Sciences of Darmstadt.

As a Bachelor Thesis, I directed my first feature documentary in 2007, “New Orleans Music Renaissance”, about the post-Katrina music scene in New Orleans, and consequently sold it to French TV channel MEZZO.

I then enrolled in the MFA in Film Production at the University of New Orleans where I could both learn narrative filmmaking and keep working with New Orleans musicians on a daily basis. There I could direct or DP multiple narrative short films. After I produced the ENG broadcast for Voodoo Fest and directed a TV talk show pilot, The Gems of Jazz, I moved to Lafayette, Louisina, for the position of Assistant Professor in the Moving Image Arts Program, at the Univeristy of Louisiana.

I am currently writing a feature screenplay to be directed and shot in the Acadiana area.
