Actor - Director - Writer - Producer - Coach


I am a freelance actor, director, producer, author and coach for theatre-, film- and tv productions.  

Since graduating from East 15 Acting School in the UK I have worked for several theatres and film production companies around the world. These productions took me to Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, Sweden and Japan. Companies and theatres include Salzburg State Theatre, ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen), Bayrischer Rundfunk, etc...

From the very beginning of my career within the arts sector it was important to me to gain knowledge about the whole process of a production. Whether for film, theatre or television I was always keen to find out how everything works. This interest opened many doors to production companies and theatres across the world. 

In the last five years I got the chance to direct plays, short films and cinema ads across Europe. I worked as a first assistant director for television production companies and theatres. I got to play great roles such as Hamlet and Macbeth in Shakespeare plays as well as portraying lovers, husbands, murderers, police officers, WWII soldiers or simply a paintball trainer.

As a writer I collaborated with Kate Shenton on her television pilot episode of The Jasons, a dark and gritty horror comedy, which has been awarded with several prizes at short film festivals across the globe. I  wrote the play Grenzg√§nger, which had a very successful run in France, and the full length play Eine Nacht im Theater - Ein Karl Valentin Abend, which enjoyed a sell out run at the Salzburg State Theatre in 2019. For both my plays I also took the director's chair. 

Between 2012 and 2016 I have been regularly to Japan as a tour manager for the world's biggest TIE company. Aside from that I started coaching (young) people in matters such as acting, directing, negotiation, public speaking and several more topics. In the capacity of a coach I am regularly holding workshops across Europe. 

My dedication, passion and interest has helped me create meaningful, relevant, contemporary content for theatre, film and television and I am always on the lookout for new challenges.
