I was born in Madagascar and grew up in Paris, then moved to London in 2008 to study at the Royal College of Art, in the Design Interactions program.
I have been self-employed since 2006, first as a graphic and interaction designer before finding interests in speculative design and storytelling.
I now craft (future) narratives through designed artefacts, and use these as a form of storytelling to probe, question or excite. I use science as fuel to imagine new relationships between people and technology, whether it allows us to achieve something fantastic or perceive reality differently.
