2010 I graduate at the documentary film school ZeLIG in cinematography. My diploma film UNFINISHED ITALY is screened at numerous international film festivals and won different awards.I stay in Italy, where I also shoot my first feature film LA MEZZA STAGIONE, which celebrates its world premiere in Karlovy Vary. Shooting for CAFÉ WALDLUFT brings me back to my roots in Bavaria.From 2014 to 2016 I live and work mostly for the German Television in Israel and Palestine. From 2017 I live with my family in Berlin and work mostly on creative feature- length documentaries, but also on documentary productions for international television stations like ARTE/ ZDF, ARD, France 3, Canal +, Rai, and others.2018 THE REAL THING from Benoit Felici screens at Hotdocs in Toronto, THE COLOR OF JUSTICE of Marjolaine Grappe leaves the editing room and there are two more feature-lenght-documentaries in the pipeline.
