Personal Profile

about me

profile

I am a documentary film maker with an education in fine art, graphic and fashion design, as well as audiovisual media. For over 8 years, I worked for both private and public TV channels in Germany. At the present moment, my focus is on contemporary topics and emerging digital platforms.

I hail from a town in former East Germany, located near the Polish and Czech Republic borders. My country’s chequered past has greatly influenced my work as assignments I undertake focus primarily on the legacy of war. I am also interested in exploring the role that media technology has played in instigating changes from a historical perspective.

I like to work across media platforms as well as cultures, both eastern and western, and convey compelling stories with a sense of humour.

Education

Drawing, Graphic, Painting, Design, Animation, Film

Burg Giebichenstein Academy for Arts and Design, Halle, East Germany

Diplomdesigner Fashion - Graduated: 1992

In my third year at the Academy, the Berlin Wall came down. Immediately after that, I became a member of the early Techno Movement. These events coincided with the Academy’s acquisition of new media equipment. A whole new world opened up for me as I gained access to video cameras and computer graphics. It was then that I realised that working with new media technologies was my vocation.

Academy for Media Arts Cologne, Germany

Diplomdesigner Audiovisual Media - Graduated: 1995

This Academy was founded in the 1990 and was renowned worldwide for being the best place to be in the early nineties. Media artists, filmmakers, programmers and graphic designers from all over the world collaborated on various projects which took place in the Computer Laboratory located at the Overstolzenhaus. We were amongst the first in Germany who corresponded with each other via e-mail and even held our first video conference with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I was also the first East German to attend the Academy.

It has always brought me great pleasure to be able to collaborate with the younger generation as I have been able to impart my knowledge and experience to them and vice versa. Up until the present, I have collaborated with pupils and students from Germany, Poland, Czechia, Israel, Belarus, France and Norway as well with underaged asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Somalia.

TV

Working for both private and public channels for over two decades has equipped me with solid experience crucial for the media projects I am embarking on today.
