I am an interior designer with five years of experience. In France and Brazil, I assisted and directed a varied range of projects, mostly in commercial and individual areas, from design stage through final construction.

After I worked for 3 months as a volunteer with  «All Hands Volunteer» for rebuilding the devastated slums of Tacloban, Philippines, affected in 2013 by Yolanda. I am more and more engage in the social and environmental issues. I am currently developing in Paris Eat & Meet, a mobile kitchen where refugees can cook and sell traditional dishes. Eat & Meet uses food to foster relationships, presenting refugees as an indispensable part of modernity.

I am convinced that our generation has to build a society based on community and cooperation.


Personal interests

I am passionate about water color paintings, which I have been practicing for 9 years. My «carnets de voyage» were part of the Identity/Memory exhibition by Gabriela Davies in 2015, in London. I also love travelling, practicing yoga and meditation. I am curious, open minded and engaged in social and environmental projects.

I hope I will share my enthusiasm and work experience with you in the future.
