About me
I'm a film director, born and raised in Quebec City, Canada. I have directed commercials, both in English and French, for a wide variety of clients and agencies, spanning from Sydney to Berlin. My commercial work has received many accolades, most notably at the Cannes Lions, the ADCC, the Marketing Awards, and many more. Even though most of the work I am known for is my minimalistic comedy, I have also written and directed several Vogue-featured fashion films, which have been screened in over 20 countries. I currently reside in London, UK, where I have been given leave of entry by the Arts Council of England as an Exceptional Talent Migrant.
