I was born and raised in Paris, France. Although I started my career as a musician, when I moved to Chicago in 2000, I decided to try my hand at another creative field – video and photography. I spent a couple of years as both a cameraman and editor working on local commercials, broadcast programming and music videos for a small production company. My experience there was a great introduction to working fast and efficiently, while producing excellent quality results.
Since then I have done a significant amount of freelance work, shooting and editing for different local production companies and networks. I have worked on projects collecting credits as operator and editor
In 2007, I became interested in a different way of moving the camera, hence my interest in Steadicam. I participated in an intensive 5-day training workshop taught by Jerry Holway, a highly respected Steadicam operator in the industry. As a trained musician, the Steadicam felt like an instrument in my hands that I could use to add dimension and dynamic movement to whatever I was shooting. I now do as much Steadicam work as possible and help out with local workshops where I share my knowledge and passion about Steadicam with students.
