fiction films and series

My latest magic realism short film SHADOW PLAYERS is curated as part of the 2021 Cannes Short Film Corner. The team includes creatives from Belgium, The Netherlands, Wales, Northern Ireland and Germany, and we shot the independently produced film in an attic in Hamburg.

I am a ScreenCraft finalist, Stowe Story Lab Final Draft Fellowship finalist, two-time WeScreenplay Diverse Voices semifinalist and BlueCat quarter-finalist. As a director I was selected for the European Genre Forum 2018, Reykjavík Talent Lab 2019 and the Works in Progress at Brussels Genre Film Market 2020. Operetta-fed by Silesian grandparents I grew up in a German fairytale forest. Studied drama in New York City, film studies in London and never returned home. I am a member of WIFT and EWA.


looking for partners

As a filmmaker I continue to bring together European talent in front of and behind the camera. I am currently working on the development of my debut feature and a series project. For these productions I am looking for partners.
