I am a cinematographer based in Basel, Switzerland.

When I came to Switzerland in 2015 I started in the Light department. As a gaffer I worked on many short films, music videos and commercials like the Lindt Christmas Campaign with DP Pascal Reinmann or the music video "Show you" for Zian with DP Jonas Steinbacher.

In 2019 I started to transition to Cinematographer, and since then I shot mostly commercials, music videos and short films.

Some of my recent projects are the Spot for the "Ehe für Alle" (Marriage for All) campaign (Nicole Beutler) and four Spots for the Frauenhaus Graubunden (Jen Ries), and the music video Future Daughters (Hannah Dobbertin)

Currently I am participating on the American Society of Cinematographer Vision Mentorship Program '22-23
