About me


In short: Graduated from Central Saint Martins MA Innovation Management with distinction. Master's thesis: play, creativity and engagement. I have five years of experience in managing projects and producing exciting digital communications for organisations with a purpose in Paris and London. Portfolio: The longer version: I am a highly enthusiastic, curious, entrepreneurial and French girl currently living and loving in London. After 2 exciting years of managing digital projects and communications for the creative channel ARTE in Paris, I decided that it was time for a new adventure. So I jumped on a Eurostar, crossed the Channel and settled in London. Between 2012 and 2014 I attended the Central Saint Martins MA Innovation Management course during which I experimented fearlessly with human-centred and disruptive approaches to business innovation. In parallel I founded my own creative and social enterprise The Pink Pony (playful industries). The Pink Pony is the playground where, on my spare time, I develop and test innovative play interactions with various applications such as building community, fostering individual and group creativity, driving user engagement and gathering qualitative user data. When I am not grooming my (pink) Pony I am crafting original, engaging copy or managing digital communications for creative organisations with a purpose. In all my works I bring a user-centred approach blending playful interactions, emotional leadership and experimentation to deliver content that enthuse the audience. If you'd like to work with me please get in touch. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
