I was born and raised in Berlin. Being drawn to photography and film, I studied at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (Dffb), where I directed several short films and documentaries, including the feature-length documentary Jonathan James Thomas Highlane. Being interested in the more theoretical aspects of film, I chose to pursue with master level studies in film theory at the Freie Universität Berlin, whilst working as a dramatic supervisor. My love for music led me work with musicians, particularly in the field of Improvised Music and Jazz, including Christian Lillinger, Anna-Lena Schnabel, Billy Hart, Natalia Mateo and many others. In 2016 I decided to move to the countryside with my two young daughters, to an old farm in the village of Soven, which will host the first edition of Suture Soven Music Festival. Recently I started to deepen my musical interest by performing myself with guitar player Rico Lee. Having the facilities to host the musical narrative of Suture Soven Music Festival allows me to sew together all the things I most care for in life: film, music and trying to live a sustainable life in the countryside.
