Born 1980 in East Berlin.
After completing a degree in Performing Arts at the Berlin University of the Arts in 2006 and several years as an actor at various German theaters, I began studying photography at the Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin in 2013, graduating in 2017. My first photographic work "The Only Thing That Matters" was published in 2016 in Die Nacht Magazine and in 2017 as a photo book by Calin Kruse in Die Nacht Verlag. In 2020, my second book "Greek Dog Days" was published by Freya Copeland and Youvalle Levy at Replika Publishing. Greek Dog Days was reviewed by Paula Gortázar on C4Journal and won the 2020 Volumes Award at Kunsthalle Zurich.
My most recent work [THE FINAL SNOW] was invited to the 2022 Hamburg Portfolio Review and the 2023 Chico Review. [The Final Snow] was among the finalists for the 2022 Gomma Grant in the black and white photography category.
