I work as a freelance director and editor.

I grew up in Lüneburg in Northern Germany. This is where I shot my first short films in my parents‘ garden.

After graduating from high school, I decided to start studying media design. From the north it went south to Baden-Württemberg. During this time I devoted myself more and more to film direction. I spent my internship in Brazil. During this time I learned to appreciate the mentality of the people there, and that enabled me to see my home country from a completely new perspective. 

Also in my work I try to break norms and setting impulses for new perspectives in relation to human existence. One of these works is the fashion video Balæna, with which I won first prize at the Miami Fashion Film Festival.

I’m always looking for new, interesting projects that want to tell a story.

If you have any questions about projects, just send me a message. I’d love to hear from you!
