If you’re a publisher looking for stories, please get in touch below!

If you’re not, I’d be more than happy to provide services against payment, including:

  • Editing! Give me money so I can tell you everything wrong about your story/essay/thesis/speech at the Senate. Promise, I’ll be nice (but not too nice).
  • Translation! I speak English, write in English, and was born in France. Also, I studied translation for a good three years at university. If you want to pull a Cyrano on someone but don’t speak the language, I will not rest until I find the accurate metaphor to convey your longing, I swear to god.
  • Writing! You want to gift someone a story for a special occasion? I’ve got you covered, pal, don’t you worry. I don’t have hard boundaries regarding content, but will get in touch if I have an issue with your commission prompt.

In every case – prices start at 10$/1000 words, with possibility to adjust depending on the amount of content to review or produce.

About Me

I was born in 1996, in a Parisian suburb you’ll probably never have heard of if you’re not into city planning.

This was followed, as it usually is, by academia – the highlight reel of which includes (beyond some embarassing theatre performances in high school), a BAC L with “très bien” distinction, an under-admissibility at the Ecole Normale Supérieure’s entry contest (I got 19.5 at the English exam, dammit, it wac close), and two BAs, in English linguistic and culture studies & French literature, respectively. I’m currently completing my skills portfolio by attending a BA in film and screenwriting at Birmingham City University in the United Kingdom.

Parallel to that, I started writing both fiction and non-fiction regularily, my first book, SHEFFIELD STEEL – ESSAYS ON THE THIRTEENTH DOCTOR, being published in September 2019.

I can play the recorder, love to pet cats, can’t cook, and will never stop talking if left unimpeded.
