She was enrolled in piano lessons from age 4, and throughout her youth the music of composers such as Ennio Morricone, Jerry Goldsmith, and Francois de Roubaix inspired her talent. She graduated from the music conservatory of Lille, France in 2002 and eventually landed a marketing position with Google, which she left in 2015 after a life-changing event at Abbey Road Studios which inspired her to pursue her lifelong passion for music and film scoring. In just a few short years, her music has been featured in a diverse set of projects and mediums.
