I am a cinematographer based in Zürich, Switzerland

Starting in the Light department, I developed my skills as a gaffer, contributing to numerous short films, music videos, and commercials. Notable collaborations include the Lindt Christmas Campaign alongside DP Pascal Reinmann and the music video "Show you" for Zian with DP Jonas Steinbacher.

In 2019, I embarked on a transition to become a Cinematographer, focusing primarily on commercials, music videos, and short films. Recent projects include the impactful "Ehe für Alle" (Marriage for All) campaign by Nicole Beutler, as well as four spots for the Frauenhaus Graubunden directed by Jen Ries. I also worked with the director Hannah Dobbertini on a spec commercial for Dilly Socks, a commercial for Best Smile and the music video "Future Daughters".

I am proud to have been part of the American Society of Cinematographer Vision Mentorship Program '22-'23, an enriching experience that has further fueled my passion for visual storytelling.
