My first ambition was to become a politician, but then I discovered art. I was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where I encountered the Atis-Rezistans, a group of artists. Shortly after I was inspired to dive into filming. Most of my films are centered on Haiti and express cultural and social issues. I am a cofounder and producer for Tele Ghetto, which is a TV show in the Haitian Ghetto. My work has been published in "Les Observateurs de France 24" and "Geo Ado". I have also received several awards, including the Global Block Award. Art is not fully enjoyed if not shared between people. I lead a Photography Program at Project Hope Art Center, because teaching kids to explore art is part of sharing my art with people.
