about me

Born in Liechtenstein, living in Potsdam, driven by moving stories who stay unconventional and subvert clichés.

As an Editorial Director I was head of the digital department of UFA Fiction, Germany's market leader in film and TV production ("Deutschland 83/86", "Hackerville", "Generation War" and many more).


As a Screenwriter I’ve been writing screenplays for movies, series and transmedia. Here are some examples of webisodes written and produced ´´by me for the german TV-broadcaster ZDF. My debut feature script Skyscraper was nominated for the German Animation Screenplay Award 2018 with my co-writer Gregor Vogt. Currently, I’m writing Blood is thicker than Plastic, a tragic comedy feature, that could be described as “Little Miss Sunshine meets Alfred Hitchcocks dead grandmother in Berlin’s backyard." With "Starchild" I'm developing a Miniseries (historical fantasy drama) about two women changing places in time. "Outlander" meets "American History X" in Nazi Germany. Last but not least, I'm working with the director and Co-writer Simona Specker on the Dramedy-Miniseries "Aktion Dornröschen" about the ludicrously but true story how 12 women forced the whole nation to introduce women's suffrage. "Erin Brockovich" meets "Glow" in the middle of Europe in 1984.


As an Expert for Animation (with an academic degree in animation and digital art) I worked for various publications and organisations and helped getting the online magazine ANIch (Animationsfilme.ch) off the ground. ANIch quickly developed into the biggest German information source around all things Animation.


My work as a Digital Artist can be seen in movies like  Die Relativitätstheorie der Liebe (UFA Cinema) or Must Love Death (Pandastorm Pictures) and here.
