    Currently residing in Berlin/Germany, I work in the field of quality narrative productions and storytelling for film as a director. Originally from the lower part of Austria, I finished my film studies in Salzburg and started out with first jobs in Los Angeles, working as an assistant director for numerous commercials & promo productions of America’s major TV networks (ABC, NBC & CBS). I always was certain about becoming a director and screenwriter, I enrolled at UCLA’s Professional Program in Screenwriting and continously practice and write to this date. I love fantastic larger than life stories. This way I made a great amount of short films like the thriller “Bloody Birthday” or comedy story “Guantanamo Baby” which had international film festival runs and I won my first awards as a director. Since 2013 I am active as a freelance director and never stopped pushing & polishing my talent.
