Born in Lyon in 1979, a wonderfull part of my childhood was devoted to classical and jazz piano learning and practicing.

Then I first worked as stage manager for several France 3 TV productions. I directed my first documentary in 2005, A hard landing, filmed in a juvenile detention center. This film was the starting point for a series of documentaries about the justice system and difficult youths, notably Childhood at court (2007 - Childhood Foundation Award) and Criminal games (2012 - Childhood Foundation Award), which were both widely seen on France 2. The film Tigran has been my first solo project uniting my passion for music and jazz with my previous films’ intimate approach. In 2019 I directed Cheikh Mondher, profession Imam, a portrait of the Imam of the Grande Mosque in Lyon.

I also work as a documentary DOP on projects directed by other directors and also direct films about Art and corporate films (Clients: Festival Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo, Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain, Audiovisit, Musée National Picasso Paris, Fondation Louis Vuitton, le Musée de l'Homme, Macval...).
