I’m a storyteller and social entrepreneur from Berlin, Germany, father of 2 children, play several instruments, see the future with my tarot deck, love vegan cooking. I am Arya in the Game of Thrones quiz and usually switch between ENFP and INFP depending on the 4 seasons. I can analyze dreams and make myself invisible in a crowded place, and I like magic rituals, reading minds, discussing politics and social issues.
The six things I could never do without
Favorite music, books, movies, food
(just a very small selection)
Ben X, Amélie, Swing kids, Fight Club, The Matrix, Babel, Fucking Amal, Velvet Goldmine, Hair...
Dead Can Dance, Metric, Yann Tiersen, Valravn, Loreena McKennitt, Myslovitz, Coldplay, Bad Religion, Depeche Mode, Andy Williams...
Carlos Castaneda, Aleister Crowley, Paul Watzlawick, C.G. Jung, anything fantasy...
I’m vegan since 1996 and love cooking. I never cook the same meal twice because I don’t use recipes - everything improvised and intuitive. :)
Short biography (official)
At age 15, I founded my first band, being 16 I directed my own dance group as a choreographer and during my schooldays I started working as a graphic designer for bands and the political underground.
After my years of travel I played in 4 more bands which eventually lead me to composing film scores and writing screenplays. In the meantime I had to earn my pocket money as a web designer and gained some acting experience in two drama groups.
My first directing I realized in 2002 with ‚paradogma’ - and this experience convinced me to found my very own independent production company ‚soda.film berlin’.
Since then I have been working as a freelance director, editor and producer of music videos, short films and social spots. Check out my filmography for some examples!
I always try to connect my 2 sides - creativity and logic. A good example is the philosophy of my film company soda.film. And I have won fame as a game modder. (Modders design and code ‚mods’, changes or additions to computer games.) To me, modding is the perfect combination of creativity and logic. And this explains my affinity to user controlled story telling, user generated content, community building, etc... (for details see ‚I’m a storyteller’)
If you want to find out more personal stuff about me, my hobbies, interests... refer to the categories in my blog (‚My 2 cents’):
