I was born in Germany and started my career as a photographer.
After a few years, I wanted to evolve and tell stories not only in photos but moving pictures. So, I studied director of photography and directing at one of Germany’s most highly regarded film academies, the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf where I graduated with an honors degree and won the German Camera Award for best cinematography for my graduation film TRANSPORT. It went all the way to the Berlinale Filmfestival and won the US Kodak Cinematographic Award at Palm Springs Filmfest, USA.
After university I started shooting commercials and was lucky to meet some creative guys who gave me the opportunity to create some of the most unique pieces in the history of commercials with them, e.g. Renault „Crashtest“, Renault “Ballett“, Runnerspoint „Faster“, Volkswagen „Spoonful“ etc.
The commercials we shot won a vast number of national and international awards including:
Golden Pencil "One Show New York“ Gold ADC Art Directors Club Germany best TVC - Gold ADC Art Directors Club Germany best cinema commercial - Gold VDW Award best TVC - Silver Andy Award "automotive“ - Gold Award of Montreux Gold Spotlight - Bronze Lion Cannes Festival - Gold Comprix - Winner Cannes Festival TV Campaign - Winner Client Award “Kontakter” best TVC of the year - Silver Eurobest - Gold NYF TV for Automotive - Winner Cresta Award Automotive - Clio Award and many, many more.
Over the past years, I worked for clients like Renault, Volkswagen, Mercedes, Honda, Nissan, MediaMarkt, Siemens, Skoda, Sixt, Nivea, Generali, Runnerspoint, Ikea, Nestle, Ferrero, EOS, Mc Donalds, MAN and many more.
I am based in Berlin and love to travel the world.
I’m always curious about what will be the next challenge!
