About me

I have always been enthusiastic about moving images. It all started as a hobby with a small camera that I always had with me.
Over time, my interest in the post-production of media productions grew as well. Already in 2018, I independently planned and implemented commercial advertising productions.
In 2019, I started studying audiovisual media at the Stuttgart Media University with the experience I had gained so far. During the course of my studies, I specialized in visual effects (VFX) for films, more specifically compositing.
After finishing my bachelor's degree in spring 2023, I started as a trainee in the compositing department at RISE Visual Effects Studios, where I had the privilege of contributing to major film productions.
This experience allowed me to collaborate with industry professionals and gain insights into the intricacies of large-scale visual effects projects.
