About Me

A movie lover, enthusiastic photographer, Inventeneer, and general contradiction. Grew up in the movies and studied Industrial Engineering, last employment saw me as an account manager doing market research for a few African breweries. My experiences and choices in life is the reason I am here today, a filmmaker.

Since a very young age I've always been a little jealous towards people who can tell a joke or have you hang on their lips whilst they tell a story. In school I found essays rather frustrating, not because I didn't know what to write for at least one page, but how to fit in the rest of my story in the following half a page to stick to the assignment. Maybe writing a story isn't my strongest point just yet, but telling stories through motion pictures does allow me to slow down my million mile an hour mind.

I've recently had the good fortune to film 5 weddings, and it turns out I really enjoy them. Four of the weddings I was a stand in video camera operator for photographers since their business partners wasn't available, which also meant the couples where not my clients. The fifth wedding though was all me.
