I’m a NYC-based, Franco-German raised, computational artist, filmmaker and researcher. I work at the intersection of filmmaking, programming, neuroscience and media design, with an inclination towards emerging technologies. I hold an Interdisciplinary Bachelor from Carnegie Mellon University in Neuroscience and New Media and an additional minor in Intelligent Environments.

I’m often drawn towards emerging tech and how it can be used to tell visual and journalistic narratives about people. I’m interested in constructing frameworks where the analog and digital can interact in complementary ways, often surrounding themes of family, memory and home. As a rule of thumb, I believe influential and successful work stems from curious inquiry, experimentation and research.
