Making movies is not just a job to me, it is an attitude to life.
I started making movies when I was 12 years old and never stopped since then. The freedom I find in being creative became my essence of life. I love working with people, actors and crew alike. Most people underestimate the importance of teamwork in filmbusiness. Only when every single crew member does his part well, the possibility of making a great movie becomes real.
I'm very happy that I was able to gather experiences in every department of filmmaking and thus able to acknowledge the effort being made.
I'm highly motivated, enthusiastic and always interested in meeting new people, working on new projects and gathering experiences.
