About me
Swedish Film and Media postgraduate (MA) with experience in film festivals, marketing, programming, writing, and translation. After studying and working in the UK and in Copenhagen, I moved to Paris in 2019. Having grown up abroad attending international schools around the world, I am a globally-minded polyglot with high cultural competency who thrives in dynamic and international work environments. My background as a third-culture kid has provided me with exceptional interpersonal skills, a high level of flexibility, and an endless curiosity. My personal passion for cinema is complimented by my work-place professionalism, organisational and time-management skills and the dedicated perfectionism I bring to everything I do.

  • Mannequin (film experiment)
    Mannequin (film experiment)Inspired by Claude Cahun’s black and white self-portraits, this short film is a conglomeration of surrealist thoughts and ideas concerning the construction and fluidity of identity, the boundaries and limitations of the body, and the strangeness of everyday objects.
