Je pense en français, speak in English, and see the world through the lens of my camera. I study Geosciences (focusing on computational modeling of natural phenomena) with certificates in Environmental Studies and French at Princeton University. My research has included anything from using DSLR photography to analyze tidal patterns off the coast of Spain, to modeling the genesis of tropical cyclones in the East Pacific. On the side, I create digital art and take photographs for Instagram with over 25K followers.
My films, including documentaries, music videos, dramas, and animations, have been selected by international film festivals for screenings and awards. Some of these include a screening at the White House to meet President Obama, winning a Student Emmy, PBS screenings, and receiving YoungArts recognition.
