I am a creative and enterprising French designer, interested in cross-disciplines project and user experiences. During my BA in product and space design in a French Art school I approached design through craftsmanship and design-art. In 2010 I went to London, UK, to attend a Master in industrial design at Central Saint Martins. This experience taught me about manufacturing processes and industry requirements, as well as problem-solving and user-centred design, which I use in order to create discussions that lead to innovations. Other areas such as interactive design, service design, brand strategy, graphic and interior design also attract me.

I am a stable, practical and dynamic person, naturally hardworking and all my work experiences have taught me the importance of being accurate and efficient. Very active and enthusiastic team worker, I love working with people from different backgrounds and culture.
