I discover and fall in love with theater at seven. During 15 years, i will take part in many amateurs shows . The latest: The Lion in Winter of James Goldman is selected among the three best shows of his region at the time of the 2011 Golden Mask. I also follow studies of cinema in Eicar. I receive the prize of the Best end of studies short-film. My last short combine my two passions : it is adapted of a theatrical dialogue of Xavier Durringer. After two years spent to assist directors of the TV channel Public Senate, I return to my first love and begin the assistantship in Opera productions. In three years, I take part in several shows with different company. My history with Opera starts with La Creole of Offenbach produced by the company of the Tréteaux Lyriques. I work then with the company Opéra Côté Choeur, together we make Carmen de Bizet, the Barber of Seville de Rossini and Traviata de Verdi. I took part in tour of these shows who will be played in different theater such as the Espace Cardin in Paris, the Pin Galant in Mérignac, the Belffroi in Montrouge and lots of other.
Not forgetting my desire of cinema, I got engaged as a third assistant director in the feature film of Emmanuel Courcol: Cease fire with Romain Duris.
This year i'm working on La Belle Hélène d'Offenbach who will be my first Opera production. I'm also looking for a production for a short-film and a movie i wrote.
