*1985 in Switzerland.
I'm in love with filmmaking since toying around with my parent's camcorder. What started just for fun, quickly turned into a serious passion for the arts of cinema and a master's degree in directing and screenwriting at the University of Arts in Zurich.
As a hungry storyteller, I feel at home in a wide range of genres. I treasure directing, scriptwriting, cinematography and postproduction.
For me, filmmaking is not about capturing reality. It's about connecting with one's soul.
Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
