Hi! I'm a photographer and filmmaker, with a great interest in lighting and storytelling. I'm passionate about social justice and connecting deeply with the people I photograph and film.

Most recently I published work in Le Monde, finished a year at ENS Louis Lumière studying cinematography, and earned a grant Brouillon d'un Rêve from La Scam. This summer, I'm teaching a photography course for high schoolers with Oxbridge at Barnard College, my alma mater!

More about me
My time is divided between Paris, where I work and recently finished a year at l'École Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière in cinematography, Syracuse, where earned a master in multimedia storytelling and visual journalism at S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in Syracuse, NY, and New York, where I grew up. 

I love to read poetry and novels, and have a particular soft spot for non-fiction. All of that informs my work deeply, and so do the years I spent working in independent film in New York (you may have seen the memorable Patti Cake$ or Men Go To Battle). Before that still, I studied Political Science and Film History at Barnard College, Columbia University. When snow comes, I follow it to the mountains and ski. There's nothing that clears my mind like feeling the wind in my two ears.

Bonjour!

Photographe et vidéaste, passionnée de l'éclairage, je travaille sur des projets autour de l'éducation, d'associations, de familles, et de la vie en communauté. À travers mon travail, je cherche à pousser les gens à voir les choses différemment, créer du changement, et surtout, promouvoir la dignité et l'empathie. Je fais aussi des projets pour des entreprises et des particuliers. J'ai étudié en master à la S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications à Syracuse, NY, et, plus récemment, je viens de passer un an dans le programme de cinématographie de l'École Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière . Avant d'étudier la photographie, j'ai travaillé dans le cinéma New-Yorkais pendant trois ans, et, encore avant ça, j'ai étudié les sciences politiques et l'histoire du cinéma à Barnard College, Columbia University. 

En ce moment, grâce au soutien de la Scam et de la bourse Brouillon d'un Rêve, je passe beaucoup de temps à Rennes pour Loving Still, un projet sur la famille et l'incarcération.
