As a freelance art director, I work in the fields of art, culture, lifestyle, and fashion. I love shaping things with my hands, speaking in pictures, daring thoughtful experiments, and challenging coincidence to create something new.

My work moves seamlessly between the areas of film, photography, animation, installation, and graphic design. I base this multidisciplinary approach on the firm conviction that consistent visuals across different media create a more intense experience for the viewer. Driven by curiosity and intuition, I explore different materials and crafting techniques such as carpentry, weaving, painting, and photography. This analog research is reflected in all projects and is the origin of my work, giving tremendous strength and authenticity to each project. As a result, analog and digital production processes flow seamlessly into one another in all my designs.
