I was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1982. I've always been interested in good stories, which I find in films, books and by traveling the world as much as I can.
I am genuinely interested in human nature. What I like most is listening to people and what they have to say without asking questions.
After a couple of internships and assistant director jobs in Germany, I moved to Los Angeles when I was 20 years old to study filmmaking at the NYFA.
Back in Germany, I worked as a freelance creative, writer and director in advertising.
In my work, I like to carve out raw and true beauty. That’s why I value good storytelling, inspirational lifestyle and exciting products like cars, which I focus on, but am not limited to as a commercial director.
My fictional directing debut, a short film called „Mikelis“ starring the legendary Scottish actor James Cosmo, screened in over 30 festivals around the world.
