22 years-old conservationist and filmmaker, I am an aspiring environmental photojournalist. Last summer I graduated from the College of William and Mary where I earned a Bachelors degree of Biology and Chinese. While in college, I joined the School for Field studies in Cambodia where I spent a few of my happiest months running around the jungle and chasing tropical butterflies. My passion for conservation, photography and filmmaking have led me through many different paths and I have investigated subjects ranging from the monarch butterflies’ population decline in Mexico to the highlanders’ indigenous land rights in Cambodia.
A true French at heart, my life would be incomplete without cheese and bread and I spend a large amount of my time both eating and talking about food! Since graduating I have worked on finishing my first feature documentary: Pursuing the Monarchs, and I have interned at the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity in Cambodia, where I assumed the role of science communicator and media content creator. Complete movie-buff, decent cook, outdoors and hammock enthusiast, I am always up for a good read or a good chat!
