Being «just» one thing never was a real option for me. I simply 

wonder too much and therefore find fulfillment in various fields of activity.

So I turned my things into my biggest asset: Broadness.

Today I combine political and social work with filmmaking, 

editorial and business. Promoting all of it together is my goal. 

Well, let me make your things into my thing...

Skills

# 01

FILM | check references

  • FIXER: I worked various jobs, gained experience and network in different industries. That makes me a fixer who gets things done.
     

  • LOCATION SCOUT AND MANAGER: Knowing a lot about swiss geography, history and culture helps me in finding, clearing and managing your locations.
     

  • LINE PRODUCER: Being managing partner with a local production house for over nine years gives me the tools to freelance as line or service producer.

POLITICS

It's crazy times we're living in. My believe is that we should build bridges not borders. Next to film, communication and media I'm devoted in projects which bring heavy opponents together, no matter what.

NETWORK

What I did to pay my bills | Tutor, flight attendant, bar keeper, cleaner, editor, journalist, photographer, snowboard pro, sales representative, CEO, investor, traveller, teacher, cook, driver, gardener, student, B&B host, project manager, call center agent, advertiser, adman, care taker, campaign manager and all I forgot to mention.
