After completing a Master in Political Sciences in Chile where I completed my first documentary, I kept making films with the question of identity as a recurrent topic in my films. Born to russian grand-fathers who immigrated in France, I couldn’t escape from this theme. I also made music videos and corporate films. I am used to working as an independant, that's why I film and edit the majority of my films.


At the same time, I take a lot of pleasure doing film-making workshops with children, which sometimes mix cinema with theatre.


Passionate about silver photography, I created a darkroom where I print my own black and white photos.


My work is fully realized through the encounters and the relationship I create with the people I meet.
