I am a graduate of Drexel University's Westphal College of Media Arts and Design in Philadelphia, PA. In order to support my artistic aspirations, I work full-time as a Digital Media Specialist for local non-profit community media center, PhillyCAM. Since I began my time there as a co-op student in 2015, PhillyCAM has allowed me to grow through hands-on media experience in graphic design for web and print, motion graphics, live TV production, video editing, and professional livestreaming for events such as TEDxPhiladelphia and the Allied Media Conference. Combined with my own values, these experiences have cemented social, economic, and environmental justice as an integral part of my work.

During my childhood, I was fortunate to travel to many countries outside the U.S. with my family from which I developed a serious case of wanderlust. I dream of seeing more of the world and spending ample time in France where my mother and her family were born. In the meantime, I take frequent hiking and camping trips to get inspired and increase my proximity to nature.

Je suis très fière d'être Française et de parler la langue couramment. Envoyez-moi un message en Français!
