Born in 1984 in Orléans, France.
Currently lives and works in Arles, France.

I graduated from the National School of Photography in 2008 and created the online magazine The Viewer (in Flash! RIP ︎), through which I published 10 issues. This experience allowed me to work in both graphic design and curation.
Starting in 2011, I focused on graphic design, specifically in the field of books. Over the course of 10 years, I have produced 70 books before co-founding Palais Books with Delphine Manjard (Librairie du Palais).
In 2022, our first book, "Desidera Nuncia" by SMITH, Raphmaj, and Diplomates, won the book prize at the Rencontres d'Arles. Since then, I have continued to create books for Palais Books while also working for other publishers and institutions as graphic designer and artistic director.
