I am a 21-year-old creative mind making content on several platforms. Born and raised in France, I am fascinated by the United States of America and have worked and studied there. After finishing my exchange program at the State University of New York at New Paltz, I decided to become a freelance travel writer. Fascinated by visual content, I also make some photography on my free time and my travels around the globe, that I publish on my Instagram page. I also like to write about those travels on my blog. However, you will find my most important work on YouTube. Indeed, since 2016, I’ve been creating videos and documentaries focused on American culture and history.
For my show Captain America, I work on researching relevant information about many topics related to American history and culture, such as American sports or the history of a city. I then record my voice and edit images and videos using Final Cut Pro X. Those videos are typically between 15 and 30 minutes long. Those episodes are also available as Podcasts.
My second show called Welcome To America brings the viewers to the United States as I make discover places around the country. I shoot videos during my journeys that I then select and edit, using a voice-over to tell stories. My work therefore includes but is not limited to filming, writing, audio recording, editing and color-grading.
Those creations have taught me a lot aside from the process of videography. I have gained strong skills in graphic design, or managing social networks.
After a semester studying Feature writing with Journalist Michael Frank, I have make my passion for writing inspiring stories my professional career. I am now a freelance travel writer and help readers to explore more thanks to immersive stories. I have been an active contributor to the adventure section of The Teller, SUNY New Paltz’s magazine.

When I was only 11, I would edit my first videos with iMovie. At 12, I discovered iWeb, with which I had fun creating some websites and blogs. I discovered WordPress a few years later. I remember creating blogs about Apple products and news, design, lifestyle… The only ones that survived is this personal blog that you are currently reading.
In 2016, I created my YouTube Channel. Why? Well, for the same reasons I wrote above. It had been a desire for a while. As an important consumer of YouTube videos, I wanted to create my owns, I just had to find the right idea. The turning point was in February, in Florida, when I was watching the Super Bowl. I realized how much I loved American culture, and I understood that it was the thing I wanted to talk about. I love what I do, first because I share my knowledge, but mostly because I learn a lot. Every new episode I write, I learn new things about fascinating subjects, by watching documentaries and reading books about the episode’s topic.
I don’t write a lot on this blog. But when I do, it is because I want to. My articles are stories, thoughts, and experiences that I want to share. There is no precise topic, I just write when I feel it is necessary. Because I believe writing has something that no other media has: sincerity. When you write, words almost come by themselves because it comes from your heart. You don’t have a camera or a microphone in front of you that might distort your words. You are alone, with a keyboard, taking your time and confiding as if nobody was ever going to read what you are writing. This is why, for some topics, I prefer letting my microphone aside and open WordPress.
In 2019, in the middle of my Disney College Program in Florida, I decided to use my creativity to make it my career, and decided to become a full-time freelance writer, focusing on immersive stories about traveling and cultural discoveries.
My adventure on the internet seems to be quite long. But more and more of my projects are working, and new ones come to my mind every day. The truth is, my adventure is only beginning, and I am so happy to be able to share it with you.
