be serious
Born in Berlin, I developed my love for filmmaking while growing up steeped in Paris’s wonderful theater and opera scene. Klaus Michael Grüber had a significant influence on me, and I treasure his poetic way of team collaboration to this day.
 
Fast forward to 2018, and I’ve graduated from the Filmakademie Wien, where Michael Haneke taught (he left in 2022).

During my ten years in Vienna, I accumulated much directing and editing experience, which means managing a large team, multi-tasking, finding creative solutions at the eleventh hour, and staying flexible and constructive under high pressure.

To explore the unique experience of an active viewer, I wrote, directed, and produced the first narrative VR film in Austria with ViennaFX, “Fluchtpunkt,” in which we combined a classical narrative with viewer autonomy making our audience the real-time editor.

At the same time, I expanded my perspective on every angle of a project by either working as an AD and cinematographer or by punishing myself with those terrifying yet delightful roles called Actor and Voiceover Artist, which brought me to work with Martin Scorsese and Tim Monich for the movie “Silence.”

I moved to New York in 2018 and am now planning my first feature, “The Obelisk,” after successfully producing a commissioned shortly in August 2020 called “The Dutchman’s Pipe.”

Although I’ve kept this “About me” short and did not mention any failures, rejections, and heartbreaks- I hope it has given you some sense of who I am and what I bring to my work. For more details, feel free to take a look at my Resume.

I’d be glad to meet you in person for a tea if you’d like to know more. A face-to-face conversation is always better than an anonymous email exchange!
