French-Lebanese multi-media communicator, I wander through the subjects of neo-diasporic identity and journalistic practices.
My approach to Visual Communication is intuitive and nourished by ‘on-the-field’ Media Archeology to bring forward a relevant story-telling.
Using a collaborative methodology around ideas of collective memory, ’filmic politics’ and cooperative broadcasting, I focus on developing conversational pieces.

In recent years I have collaborated with art galleries & museums (Onomatopée (NL) / MUDAC (Lausanne)), magazines & studios (ISHKAR (London) / Studio Safar (Beirut)) and pop-up exhibitions (Dutch Design Week).
I am currently the co-founder and creative director at Export Radio (RCA VisCom’s radio station), design editor for The Pluralist (RCA's independent newspaper) and contributor for Content-Free.net (RCA VisCom's living archive).
I recently joined curator and writer Roisin Tapponi alongside 5 other women; Nour Helou, Reman Sadani, Bella Barkett, Isra Al Kassi, Shahnaz Dulaimy, to be part of Habibi Collective as art director and developer of archival workshops/talks series for the platform. Founded in 2018, Habibi Collective is an open-access resource, digital archive and curatorial platform for women’s filmmaking from South-West Asia and North Africa.

I grew up between the quietude of the French countryside and the always boisterous Beirut. Now based between London and Paris, I’m currently finishing my masters studies at the Royal College of Art of London.
