I’m a Vienna-based director who was born in East-Berlin in 1978.
I’m working in the film industry since 1998 and started working as a director in 2008.
My work covers commercials and narrative fashion/ music videos as well as shorts and a documentary.
In my work I’m often dealing with the subject of memory and special places which have a magical appeal. So for me it´s more about letting the story and characters develop out of their inner quest or their surrounding.
To be dedicated to work with people, on stories, with actors and carve out the essence - story- and visual-wise, is my great ambition.
I grew up among an adventurous surrounding in the East-Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg.
Besides living in a socialist country where you´re used to having less and being politically influenced, life was exciting - during childhood of course.
At the age of 11, three month before the wall came down, in the summer of 1989, I went with my mother from East- to West-Berlin and a new life started. It was a challenge not to be the outsider from the East.
