About me

Throughout my studies (MA in International Relations and MA in Multimedia Creation and Production) and career, I have closely connected audiovisual storytelling with cultural cooperation and dissemination. Since my first job in the audiovisual field, 8 years ago, I have been focusing on crafting stories with impact putting a particular attention on audiences and engagement. Speaking 4 languages fluently, I have worked on three continents with a wide variety of partners (non-profit organizations, cultural institutions and brands) holding a number of communications roles ranging from project lead, content creation-curation to event and campaign coordination.
My three last experiences in Cambodia, Mexico and the UK have allowed me climb an important step on the managerial ladder. I gained expertise in managing both audiovisual and digital projects: creation of a web documentary series, design of websites, mobile applications, content editing and digital strategy. In these contexts, the projects I have developed often had a strong educational dimension and a will to involve citizens, experts, media and cultural actors in common processes. Over the years, I have become increasingly focused on developing digital communication tools for institutions or brands that wish to communicate with the general public about important topics or issues. I am passionate about new technologies and I enjoy exploring new ways of connecting the physical and the digital.

My latest projects include developing — together with Oscars-nominee filmmaker Rithy Panh — an international multimedia project shedding light on the lives of people living on one dollar a day www.onedollar.bophana.org, training young Cambodians in audiovisual & new media techniques through the projects www.whitebuilding.org and teaching transmedia storytelling at EICTV Cuba and at Goethe Institue La Paz, Bolivia.
