Hello! I am a Vienna based storyteller working in the fields of photography and documentary filming. I like getting lost. During endless classes in school I was drawing comics on insects, Cleopatra and my shaggy dog.  At the age of 14 I produced an excessive amount of selfies with my first camera, a Digicam. And then it started, as soon as I was accompanied by my camera, curtains and doors opened and I got intrigued by the idea of wandering this whole wild world and it’s hidden corners.

I love the smell of my knees, itchy questions and the loneliness of lakes and rivers in stormy weather. And I love Vienna, my personal place to be, including the nearby Balkans. Regarding my black backpack I feel best when carrying my camera, a sketchbook, nuts or even better chocolate, a blue bottle of water, this laptop, a 5TB hard-drive, an orthopedic mousepad, a mouse, watercolors and an ink pen.
