Mon passe-temps favori, c’est laisser passer le temps, avoir du temps, prendre son temps, perdre son temps, vivre à contretemps. F. Sagan











I’m a New York City-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 graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with an Interdisciplinary Bachelor in Neuroscience and New Media and a minor in Intelligent Environments.

PERSONAL PRACTICE

As a researcher, I’m drawn towards objective visual and journalistic narratives and how those fields can be translated through technology. As an artist, my goal is to use emerging tech as a tool to learn more about the world and create meaningful interactions for the people in it. 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. 

PROFESSIONAL WORK

To date, I've applied my skills in the music and fashion industries, as well as in visual research and journalism. Past employers and clients include Studio Institute, the Museum of the City of New York and Studio Ijeoma, Mercury Records Paris, Thrival Innovation + Music Festival, The Coding Train and Golan Levin in the Frank-Ratchye Studio for Creative Inquiry. I am also a contributor, design and filmmaking fellow on the open-source Synopsis project, an ML-driven video-editing software for filmmakers and vjs. I am currently working as an experiential designer for DE-YAN.


Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any inquiries! I’m always available for freelance work.
