film | maker


I am a German/American documentary filmmaker with a passion for fascinating stories told in innovative ways. Coming to film from the artworld, I am particularly interested in the subjects of art, dance, and creativity. I work both as a self-shooter and with crews, having led international film teams in the UK, Japan, India, and Germany.

I also develop and produce television documentaries, most recently, producing and directing archive-based documentary series for BBC World and the History Channel UK respectively. Beyond my love for documentary, I like to explore the realms of dancefilm and immersive performance.

I produced my own Channel 4 Random Acts film – The Pool, which screened at Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival (Bristol) and Playback Festival (ICA, London). The film was nominated for a Royal Television Society Student Television Award in the category of Postgraduate Short Form. I have also have produced and co-directed an Arts Council England funded project on puppetry theater.
