I am a French born and raised writer and director based in Sydney, Australia. I have written, directed and produced my first film in 2011, a noir short called "Lie to Me", which was funded by Screen NSW/Metro Screen. The film premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival and has screened at several festivals including the St Louis International Film Festival.
Since, I have directed two more short films that have screened at the Short Film Corner of the Cannes Film Festival as well as NOLA: Festival (US).
I am currently developing a film called "Desiderata.", which is inspired by a text from Max Erhmann.
I am planning to move on to feature films afterwards as it is where my passion lies (dominantly: drama, noir genre, thriller).
My work is available for viewing via Vimeo (private links) so feel free to contact me if you'd like to see it.
