Half-French, half-British, raised in Kuwait at the end of the 1st Gulf war,
I have spent my childhood being fascinated by unexplored stories from all over the world.
My BA graduation film won the Student RTS and whilst still at uni I was hired to direct a series of 11 animations for Bayard in Paris which was broadcasted for 2 years in France and Canada.
In 2015, I've directed a feature documentary about the lost civilisation of the Guanches: "Savages in Foreign Lands". The production of the film partly took place on a sailing boat across the Atlantic Ocean for over 7 months.
The film is distributed by ZED and had a cinema release in 2017 and several TV broadcasts in 2018 and 2019 (Direct TV & VTV).
Prior to that I also worked in the camera department for many productions such as BBC World, FOX, StarZ, ITV, S4C, Nissan... I also directed over a dozen short films and was part of a theatre group for about 10 years.
I am now studying at the National Film and Television School on the Directing Fiction MA course.
