BIOGRAPHY

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 both in the camera and light department.

Today, in addition to my own projects, I work as a freelance 
Gaffer on smaller productions, and as an electrician and lighting assistant.

I'm a member of the collective "Filmfraktion", based in Zurich, and of the SSFV (Swiss Film Union).
