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...

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

  • LOCATION SCOUT AND MANAGER: Since I know a lot about Swiss geography, history and culture, I can find, approve and manage your locations.

  • LINE PRODUCER: I was the managing partner of a local production company for nine years and now I work as a freelance line or service producer.

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.
