After visual arts studies in the city of Arles, then in Netherlands, I graduated with a Filmmaking master in Paris. My first genre short ; «ARÀKHNÊ» premiered on american horror channel "WATCH ALTER".  I work as in-house creative and videographer in luxury fashion house of Balmain. I have directed mainly fashion and editorial videos, documentaries or fiction. My style merges dreamy, surreal, poetry and mysterious atmospheres. My desire is to develop strong visual worlds using "genre" film codes and bring it to brand films.
