Traveller and photographer, I’ve always had itchy feet. After studying English and German literatures and cultures both at home in France and abroad in Germany and in Scotland, I taught French at a high school in England for a year.

I also travelled extensively throughout Europe, with an inclination for alternative ways of travelling, e.g. hitchhiking, Couchsurfing, volunteering, that give me an unrivaled thrill of adventure, but first and foremost lead to more interactions with locals and thus a deeper understanding of the places I explore.

The passion for photography came naturally, as a way to remain creative while being on the road and to become more engaged with the places and people I encounter.

In July 2017 I embarked on a year-long journey hitchhiking across Europe and Asia, from my hometown into the unknown, to explore the gradual evolution of landscapes, people and cultures through documentary writing and photography.
