About Me

I was raised by a German ‘hippie’ who escorted me on expeditions to Nepal, Bali and across Europe as a child. So, my wanderlust is no mystery to ones who know me. I’ve led my own expeditions to Ghana, Australia, Russia and Jamaica. In my early teens my love for visual narrative and documentary filmmaking became irresistible. For the past decade I have traveled from the Caribbean to the Arctic, filming stories about art, culture and science.


My work airs on Red Bull TV and Germany’s national television stations, including ARD, ZDF, RTL and Pro 7. My most recent projects include documentary features about natural gas in Siberia, the music culture in Manchester, street food in Jamaica, and a TV series about Bavarian families. My portfolio also includes music videos for Kymani Marley, Tarrus Riley and other Reggae musicians.


I paint with light and dance with my camera, creating images that evoke the energy of the moment entirely.
