ABOUT ME

                                                  A Little bit about myself...

 

                                                                      Fresh out of Lycée Magendie (Bordeaux, France) and passionate about animated films, I                                                                         started my university studies in Film Animation and Theatre Design at Concordia                                                                                       University(Montreal, QC). After studying for 4 years and winning 3 Film Animation awards,                                                                       I obtained with distinction my double bachelor degree.

 

                                                                      Since then, I have worked on several productions, both in film animation                                                                                                     and theatre.
