I’m a multidisciplinary artist, filmmaker and music composer currently based in Munich and Vienna. Apart from my (completed) Bachelor studies in Multimedia Art in Salzburg I’ve also spent a semester abroad at the University of Newcastle, Australia, where I studied documentary filmmaking, journalism, communication and film history.

During my semester breaks I took short courses at the University of Vienna (architecture and cultural studies), Namibia University of Science and Technology (economics and politics) and at the University of Palermo (Democracy, Migration and Human Rights). Through several internships at Sony Music Entertainment, the EU- funded initiative Documentary Campus e.V., a national TV production (ZDF) and a commercial film production I discovered my strong passion for multimedial (non-fiction) storytelling.

Currently I am studying Cultural Analysis and European Ethnology (MA) and Communication For Development (MA) whilst pursuing a career in documentary filmmaking.
