MOVING LIGHTS AND SHADOWS.
Born in 1998 as the son of a musician and a sound engineer, I discovered my joy in filmmaking at an early age through music and first short video clips.
After various internships and first experiences on sets in Germany and Switzerland, I studied film at the Zurich University of Arts from 2017 to 2021 (with a focus on Cinematography). At the same time, I gathered more practical experience and further education in both the camera and light department.
Today, in addition to my own projects, I work as a freelance Electrician and Lighting Assistant, as well as Gaffer on smaller productions.
I can provide my own professional lighting equipment for every type of shoot (see full list).
I'm a member of the collective "Filmfraktion", based in Zurich, and of the SSFV (Swiss Film Union).
