An award-winning film composer, she is leveraging her extensive experience in this field to nurture her song and dance composition.
She obtained a Master's degree in Contemporary Composition at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Lyon (CNSM de Lyon). Her desire to embody her own music in the most personal way possible led her towards operatic-style singing as well.

Since then, she composes for fiction films and documentary filmes. She also carried off numerous international awards as a composer and songwriter.
