I was born in Lyon (France) in 1979. Following my graduation from the ESSEC business school, I began my acting training in Paris with the evening classes of the National Theatre of Chaillot. Then, I attended the acting classes of director Patricia Koseleff in Teatro Pazzo (pedagogy of Jacques Lecoq). For the theatre, I am the author of several plays including Shakespeare and Cervantes, presented in Czech festival Sněz tu žábu! in Prague in 2015 (dir. by Linda Dušková) and Suis-je donc…? published in France in 2016 (Les Cahiers de l’Egaré).

Alongside my activities as an actor, a author or a director for theatre and audiovisual projects, I created in France the theatre company Traverscène in 2006. It produced several of my plays : Les contes de la petite fille moche and Je ne suis pas ta chose directed by Patricia Koseleff in 2008 and 2010. In 2013, I directed the multidisciplinary performance Pont de Vernon, impressions (Normandy Impressionist festival) and the theatre play Hänsel & Gretel – La faim de l’histoire in co-production notably with the National Scene of Créteil (MAC). Since 2016, I work with Linda Duskova in Traverscène. I played in Das ist die Galerie, adapted from Description of a picture by Heiner Müller, and in Tue, hais quelqu’un de bien, which I also rewrote the text. Those two shows were presented in La Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil – Centre Dramatique National in october 2016.

I also facilitated numerous artistic workshops with different audiences, children and adults, in France, Czech Republic and Moldova. At the request of the National Scene of Créteil (MAC), I developed a professional training about it. Then, I animated group training sessions for artists and cultural mediators.

Since october 2015, I am a PhD student at the University of Arts of Târgu Mureş, Romania. My research focuses on a comparison between theatrical creative process and digesting process. Since then, I participated to several conferences in Romania, Czech Republic and France. I also started to develop my acting method : Body Hanting Theatre.
