1998/99 European Film College, 2006 Diploma in cinematography, master class at the Hamburg Media School (HMS), since then working as a freelance camerawoman in the documentary, art and feature film sector.
My focus in camera work is on a small team, the close collaboration with the director and the protagonists, and an immediacy of the stories that arises from the lack of distance to the 'film team'.
Since 2004, I have been working with improvisation on stage and later in film (training with, among others, hidden shakespeare, The Crumbs, Eugen Gerein). In 2012, I founded the production company HIDDEN HITCHCOCK GbR together with Mignon Remé, and as a director I produced three improvised feature films in the style of Mumblecore, both of which have been shown at many festivals, the first of which won the Max Ophüls Audience Award in 2012.
Since 2011 I am mother of a son.
Since 2015 I have a teaching position at the University of Applied Sciences for camera and light in documentary filmmaking.
In 2015/16 I did an interdisciplinary pedagogical training for artists and cultural workers at the Alice Salomon Hochschule and at ACT! Berlin and since then I have been working as a freelance trainer for various projects with children, teens and young adults. In 2017 Sarah Nüdling and I founded the 'Kreaturen Kollektiv' to realize our own projects in this area.
In all my projects I like to work process-oriented. This means for me that I attach great importance to flexible structures and to the willingness to improvise and redefine existing systems in order to promote and explore new possibilities.
