Born as the third child in a house of musicians, I grew up in the middle of the European Alps.
I´ve got in touch with sounds, nature and mountains from childhood on. I am an expert
in mountaineering, skiing and several other sports that can be done in the Alps.
After I graduated as an electric engineer, I worked in different jobs - land measuring,
first aid man, construction worker and finally electrician.
Meanwhile another passion
came up to my mind and together with some friends I started to explore the world,
learned Spanish, traveled through Europe and did my first expeditions. By mountain bike
I went through Iceland in 1989 through Fireland and Patagonia in 1991 and through
Pakistan´s Northern Provinces in 1993. At the end I took all these talents together
and became an assistant cameraman. I worked with MII, Beta SP, Digital Beta, DV Cam, 16mm
Arri SR, 16mm Aaton and 35mm Arri 2C.
Two years later I started recording sound, and up to now I´ve been recording sounds
for many films all over the world. I´ve done commercials and feature films and
many documentary and wildlife films in very remote areas. I like to work in small teams
and it comes handy that I know how to operate cameras of all kinds. Additionally I offer
my experience in operating a camera crane, I offer my climbing skills and my competence
in construction. Any rope work (guarding the camera crew up on a high tree or secure them
in a wall of rock) or building platforms 150 feet up a tree and surrounded by seventy
beehives, can be done by me. My vast experience in expeditions made many production companies
to choose me for their team.
