For nearly a decade I worked as a multimedia reporter for BBC News which helped me set high standards for visual storytelling. Since 2010, multiple collaborations as a cinematographer with fashion and entertainment photographers also helped me find a niche and a safe space for creativity, fiction and art which also led me to launch an artist collective for the digital age: SWOON New York. I now help others turn their ideas into motion pictures.
Over the last few years I've directed and filmed the promotional campaigns for some of the most awarded international TV shows such as Netflix’s “The Crown”, “Narcos”, or Amazon’s "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". What better way to learn how to tell stories than helping others promote and tell theirs.
VANITY FAIR’s first-ever Hollywood Portfolio short film, went viral online and was featured as part of the official selection of several international fashion film festivals (London, Milan, Berlin) winning the fashion short of the year award at the Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (2015).
As a director, a cinematographer and a former journalist I'm constantly curious about everything that unfolds before his eyes; from the little unnoticed stories that flood our everyday lives to the big narratives that drive our existence.
Film is ultimately about human emotions. If somebody sees the world differently after watching a film - no matter how they see it - and feel something about it - no matter how intensely - mission accomplished!
