I am a documentary film director based in Berlin. I grew up in Hildesheim/Germany where I was born in 1989. My academic journey, which included social and communication sciences, took me from Erfurt to Berlin, and even all the way to Jerusalem. I also had the chance to call Beirut, Lebanon, and Johannesburg, South Africa, my home at different points in my life. After a first career in political communication, I decided to follow my passion: documentary film. In 2018, I enrolled in the documentary directing class at the self-organized film school filmArche in Berlin and made several short films. I had the privilege of being a Heinrich Böll Foundation scholar and participated in the dok.art development program as well as in the Pitch_IT@Berlinale program. I am a co-founder of the film production company panther reh and give workshops on filmmaking. My short documentary film Going Alone about state funerals has been screened at festivals all over the globe.
