I started studying law and economics in Münster, both at the same time, because I couldn’t say which I liked better. After realizing that I didn’t like either, I moved to Hamburg and completed something sensible at a renowned ADVERTISING AGENCY: an apprenticeship as an advertising manager.

I found my PASSION in the “Moving Images” department, the department that produces cinematic communication for in-house CREATIVE DEPARTMENT, consulting and clients. I then went one step further, to a film production company – I am still grateful to TONY PETERSEN for teaching me how to THINK purposefully. This was followed by two or three stations that taught me, among other things, that the really IMPORTANT things should be written down.

I founded my own film production company, BLACK PICTURES, and I still love WALTER SCHÖNAUER’s CI to this day. After a few years, I got to know JÖRG BITTEL better. We liked each other, we appreciated each other and he wanted me to join his company. I was reluctant, I didn’t want to give up my company. At Christmas, he wrote me one of the most extraordinary letters I’ve ever received. It wasn’t about business at all, just about us and humanity. That’s how my time at MARKENFILM began.

I learned a great, great, great deal there and WORKED even harder. It became almost 15 years together with many extraordinary projects and ENCOUNTERS all over the world.

In 5 or 6 years after that, I helped 2 FILM PRODUCTION companies to complement their business models, to sharpen the PORTFOLIO, to professionalize the production department and to develop a specific DIRECTORS ROSTER.

Over the last 4 years, I have managed the production at REKORDER and helped to develop the portfolio, as well as re-establishing the German business for HAMLET (Brussels, Paris, Shanghai, Berlin, Hamburg) and developing both LOCATIONS. I make no distinction between large or small budgets – my COMMITMENT to the job is always equally strong.

Today, business models are FLEXIBLE and DYNAMIC and no cobbler sticks to his last. Agencies come up with PRODUCTS, sell them and found start-ups. COMPANIES design and produce their CAMPAIGNS themselves and their own EDITORS deliver content. And FILM PRODUCERS no longer just produce the IDEAS of others, but have some of their own. They participate in the DEVELOPMENT of cinematic COMMUNICATION in earlier phases.

I have mainly worked in the automotive, food, beauty, technology, pet food, finance, pharma and retail sectors – for all the brands and advertising agencies you know. Over the YEARS, I have worked on several hundred PROJECTS:
