About

I am a French-Spanish-American filmmaker living in New York. 

My debut narrative feature: According to Her (2016) went on to screen at Cinequest, India Int. Film Festival, Moscow Film Festival, Ventana Sur, and many more before, being nominated for a Golden Peacock (IFFI Goa 2016) and winning Best Producer and Best Musical Score (BFF 2017) before being distributed by Under The Milky Way. I have been nominated for the NBC Universal Emerging Director program in 2017 and a finalist at the Toronto Int. Film Festival Director Lab in 2018.

As a screenwriter, I wrote According to Her (2016), Turn the Tide (2018), and Screenshots (2021), all narrative feature screenplays, and one series pilot: The Doorwoman (2017), a Final Draft screenwriting competition finalist. 

As a lecturer and professor, I have been working at Sorbonne University, Stevens Institute of Technology, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. I hold a Ph.D. in Art History and when living in Paris, made video artworks that have been exhibited in art galleries and museums. 

On the side, I paint a bit, I read a lot, mostly literature and philosophy, I am interested in architecture, specifically the use of video and nature. I love watching people dancing, I’m attracted to grace, wit, and humor.
