Director's Bio

Born in 1992 in Sherbrooke, Quebec, of a business teacher mother and orthodontist father, both great sportspeople, the elder of three had a fertile imagination and constantly reinvented the world surrounding him. This is what mainly characterized his youth. For him, films unavoidably became a passion. Very early on, he found usefulness in his creative potential. Along with music among others, he discovered himself through different artistic mediums. The way to follow had defined itself. Even if nothing could then ever really go beyond the backyard, the playroom, and the drawing table, the boy couldn’t be stopped as he’d escape all day.

Today, his efforts are concentrated on the development of a new cinema, as much in front of the camera as behind it, be it as director, screenwriter, or producer, with an occasional passage in the world of music. To bring characters to life in the larger perspective of building an artwork in all of the task’s whole complexity and beauty, in various ways corresponding to a different original context, is all he aspires to.
