I’ve been a filmmaker since childhood. Starting of with my father’s camera to film my sisters and myself. I soon took over the two VHS recorders in the living room to re-edit TV series tape-to-tape. When I was 16, I bought my first own DV camera and a computer based editing system. I took my first film courses at the John Abbott College in Canada in 2001, and after graduating from high school, I trained as a Media Designer for Sound and Vision for three years. I moved to Berlin to gain many more years of experience in different areas of cinema and television film production, while working on sets and in the post-production (for ARRI Media, among others). In addition to taking acting and improv theater courses in my free time, I continued to direct my own film projects. A lot of them won awards at national and international festivals and were released afterwards. In my late 20s, I studied film directing at the UCA in England and at the ifs in Cologne. I graduated with my first feature film for cinema: BEAT BEAT HEART (2016). This “Feelgoodmovie about heartbreak” was awarded with the Special Prize for Ensemble Spirit and Energy at the Filmfest München 2016, among others. My next self-produced film A LAST HURRAH followed in 2020. It was awarded “Best German Film” at the Universal Film Festival and “Best Film – Medium Length” at the Independent Star Filmfest Munich in 2021. Next to that, I have been shooting children’s series for KIKA, fairy tales for ARD and feature films for ZDF television primetime.
I teach improvisation and comedy for actors and directors, am a member of ProQuote Film and WIFT Germany and was part of the Into The Wild Mentoring Program.
