ACD / Art Director  #Conception #Design #Motion #Photography

Originally from France, I moved to Canada for 2 years, and have been living in New York for 4 years.

I started my career at the age of 20 when I had hair down to my lower back, working for Air France, Nike, Nestlé, Peugeot...

I have a love for conceptual campaign ideation, having spent 10 years around the talented minds of BETC, but also seriously nerd out on photography, coding, motion, design and 3D. 

I love meeting new people and making your life easy.
