I’m a cinematographer with a nomadic spirit, based in Berlin. After completing my degree in Asian/ African Studies and Social Sciences at Humboldt University Berlin, I followed my passion for film and studied cinematography and documentary filmmaking at Filmarche Berlin and at Zelig School for Documentary Film in Bolzano, Italy. In 2016 I graduated as DOP with the feature length documentary ‚Before I Met You‘.

For me, being behind the camera is the best way to uncover the mystery of humanity and human emotions. Being a mindful observer of reality, I always aim to capture the essence of a moment and to precisely translate ideas and stories into visual image, creating the unique universe of a film.

I worked on projects in Slovakia, Italy, Spain, Indonesia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Norway and Germany and am looking forward to new experiences and exciting projects.
