I'm a French-American filmmaker, choreographer, and writer.

 

I received my BA from UCLA in World Arts and Cultures with a focus in interdisciplinary performance. In 2018 I completed my MFA in Film and Production at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts in order to combine my passion for storytelling and movement. During this time I concentrated on screenwriting and directing. I was awarded the John Huston Directing Scholarship and the Kodak grant for my short film "Falling Leaves".

 

My work centers around the dances in our lives. From the smallest gestures to the most extreme leaps of faith, these movements guide us along our journey. I write female-driven narratives that utilize physical movement to create characters that viscerally touch an audience.

 

I have shown my choreography at LACMA, The Walt Disney Concert Hall, Coachella, and the Centre Pompidou. I have worked with the brands Adidas and Samsung.  

 

Currently, I'm working on my feature film, music videos, and visual art.
