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 daughters, to an old farm in the village of Soven, which hosts the Suture Soven Festival. Playing music myself with my Band Carolina Lee is a new love of my life. Having the facilties to host the musical narrative of Suture Soven 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.
