Let’s talk!


Designer / Filmmaker / Animator / Curious

I love to make things move but not only as I take great pleasure in designing and directing too.
I thrive on challenges and better work every day!

A bit of a background story? Sure! I grew up in Annecy, in the Alps mountains in France. I studied animation and 3D for 4 years at ArtFX, Montpellier and graduated in 2011. Then I moved to Denmark and started my motion design career with the amazing team over at JaFilm. For 6 years I worked with them on several projects, including TV idents, animated short films, feature films and infomercials. It was a thrilling experience and I learned a lot but I decided 2018 was the time to tap into the freelance world. So here I am!

Past clients include

Ja Film
M2 Film
Dionysus Media
Skipper IB
Atomic Digital
