I have a competitive spirit and an insatiable appetite to learn and solve design/technical needs.
I am currently based in Los Angeles as of the summer of 2018. Previously I lived in Austin while completing my Master of Fine Arts in Integrated Media Design at the University of Texas at Austin. Previous to both of these, I was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec.
My most recent credits include; working as an LED programmer on X-Men : Dark Phoenix and American Horror Story Promotional Shoot; as projection/video designer for the play Enron at the University of Texas at Austin; and designing, producing, and directing my own new work for my thesis Video Games as Live Performance.
During the final year of my Bachelor of Fine Arts (Winter 2015) in Design for the Theatre at Concordia University, I worked with Lifelong Productions - designing scenery and lighting. Our company found notable success with multiple Frankie Award nominations and regular positive reviews. In 2016, I spent the summer with the Stagecraft Institute of Las Vegas, earning seals in Lighting Technology, Lighting Systems and Programming, and Audio.
I like to spend my downtime doing activities with friends, enjoying food, listening to music, playing video/board games, following the NHL and watching Netflix or HBO. I have a competitive spirit and grew up playing competitive games and sports, most notably as a Counter-Strike player in a variety of LAN tournaments and online leagues. I am bilingual - I speak English and French!
