My Process

of storytelling  goes much longer than the dreads on my head. Yeah, quite a long time now. Depending on the subject, project or concept my office tends to go where the action is.  As an independent media expert. I help in creating visual stories for companies, brands and artists. Am currently operating from Zurich, Switzerland - as travelling all-over Europe has become a basic norm for me to make things happen.

I shoot-to-edit meaning pre-production is of great value to me. I'm adaptable and swift while on set. Experience over the past years proves my biggest weakness as -not eating enough while at it. 
You gonna have to remind me of that.

Where required depending on the scale of a particular project I network with fellow professionals  
from respective fields eg. scoring, sound design and animation.
