I studied Photography in Munich, where I am now based, working as a freelance photographer, producer, and curator. My interest in people, my fascination for their behavior and interaction is what drives me to take pictures. For my personal work, I like to focus on certain regions, creating site-specific stories. I am rather curious, and very much intrigued by light and oddities. 

Clients include: Arch+, Beltz Verlag, bethang.org, BLWG, BR - Bayerischer Rundfunk, Deichmann, Die Holzbläser, Dummy Verlag, Hermes Arzneimittel, MIXT Kinderkunsthaus, Liberty International, Prestel Verlag, Psychologie Heute, room on fire, SSF Ingenieure, sunday times magazine, Tirolwerbung, Twenty One Media, Weltkunst, Zeitverlag. 

In addition to my work as a photographer, since 2019 I have been a member of a curatorial collective consisting of photographers who organize FOTODOKS, the largest independent festival and exhibition for contemporary documentary photography in Germany, taking place in Munich, on a biannual basis.
