Born in the late 70s in southern Germany to a German mother and a French father I grew up with an ever-present passion for moving imagery, which I managed to turn into my profession.
Beyond my two mother tongues, German and French I also speak English.
After working in the late 90’s as a Camera Assistant and shooting smaller projects by myself,
I had the opportunity to study Cinematography at the prestigious ‘Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg’
from which I graduated in 2004.
In 1999 I began working as a DOP for various music videos, commercials and feature films.
With every project I am looking for opportunities to grow as a creative,
therefore I view every challenge as a chance to expand my knowledge.
This enables me to offer the directors that I work with a unique aesthetic,
which reflects the emotional content of the story.
My greatest pleasure lies in hearing an outstanding idea, feeling that special atmosphere or reading a fascinating script
and translating the intangible into a visual that has the ability to highlight and enhance the special nuances of every individual story.
