Behind the Scenes …
I´m born 1970 in Stuttgart and have been working as a freelance filmmaker and television journalist for almost 20 years. Since then I live and work in Cologne.
In my films I can unite everything that interests me. Mostly telling peoples stories. In my filmmaking it is about letting myself be surprised, be irritated, deeply moved or overwhelmed, to look, to listen, to understand. It´s about curiosity, interest, rhythm, movement and the fascination for the magical combination of image, sound and music.
For many years I have been been working mostly for German and International Public Television. I likes to create portraits of people, in recent years often of musicians — because music is my second passion besides film — and artists. But for me as a filmmaker, anyone who has something true to tell is exciting, who speaks about something that concerns, moves and touches us.
I am familiar with all aspects of filmmaking. I work predominantly as director and author and have long-standing experience as producer, film editor and cinematographer.
