I am a multidisciplinary award winning German/South African filmmaker based in Cape Town. I started my career in post-production in 2003 as an editor but soon moved into the camera department where I started working as a cinematographer in 2009; shooting mainly TV commercials, music videos, documentaries, reality television and brand films. In 2014, I made my move into directing, taking what I’ve learned from years spent as a cinematographer and editor, and combining these skills. I really enjoy shooting emotionally engaging stories and projects that are technically demanding. When I’m not busy honing my craft, I’m usually in the mountains climbing, high lining or trail running; I would love to expand my career into extreme sports and adventure content. My work on the Packa-Ching and McDonald’s The Unchangers campaigns has won me a Bronze Lourie and a Gold Creative Belgium Award, respectively.
