About Me

I am a director based in Düsseldorf, Germany. 

I direct, film, edit and produce documentaries, music videos and image films. 

In the past, I have worked with jazz musicians like Nils Wogram and Markus Stockhausen, the famous Band "Bläck Fööss", reported as a video- and photojournalist from the refugee crisis in Serbia for WDR Television and founded my own creative company "Parting Glass Pictures", teaming up with WDR anchor and journalist Martin von Mauschwitz.

I learned how to produce, shoot and edit video at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism in New York City where I underwent an intensive training program for video journalists and documentary filmmakers. 

After finishing my Masters Degree in American History, Political Science and International Law at Freie Universität Berlin, I absolved one year of stage and vocal performance training and later continued my music studies at The Collective School of Music in New York City.
