Process and movement in the largest sense have infused all my work.
As an anthropologist, I analyzed migrations and language borrowing. As a creative producer, I transitioned ideas from seedlings to fruition. As
a photographer, I capture single gestures and a larger creative process.
Taking a similar approach, I document larger processes like end of life and personal contexts that challenge us as humans. The images act as imprints, visual tools for accessing embodiment and experience.
I've spent equal parts of my life in France and in the United States, where I was born and have returned to discover a new coast in Berkeley, California.
The details: I received my B.A. at Amherst College and M.A. at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris. While completing PhD research, I jumped into game design at the Centre Pompidou Children’s Workshop and joined multimedia pioneers at Voyager to forge their Paris office. I freelanced and taught interactive media at the Université de Paris-8 then became a content designer, project manager and creative director at Virtools, publishers of software for real-time interactive 3D.
I have nurtured professional experiences with personal artistic work that merges theory and practice, ranging from multidisciplinary collaborations with choreographers and visual artists, to interactive and photographic installations.
