It was a dream for me to work on a tv channel and never thought it could become real. The second and third moments are when we introduced our tv series Germinal in the North of France, Region where the show took place, and the fan’s projections of Skam France: discovering the people reaction/ emotion was a great moment in my producer’s life If I could, what would I change about myself?

Who are my heroes and heroines in real life? My parents.

Which movie would i recommend to see once in a lifetime? It’s a tough question… too many choices… I would say Usual Suspect from Bryan Singer Old Boy from Park Chan-Wook Snatch from Guy Ritchie But also Incompreso From Comencini

What role play stories in my life and work? It’s my job .. I imagine or try to imagine everything, all the time … Sometimes I imagine things tougher than they are, because in fiction we have seen everything 😉

What do the words ‘You are the storyteller of your own life’ to me? We have to make choices every day and whatever the result is we will learn and have to assume something.

Which people in my profession who can make a real difference in my creative career would i love to meet? I try to develop projects that i love and of course I want to meet all the authors of the concerned books or stories. I also want to work with all the French channels. Our great chance as producers is to produce different programs and stories. I wish I can work with all of them.
