I´ve been in the business since 1998. My main interest is feature films, but I gladly also do commercial work, short films and music videos. My number one goal is to help the director focus in directing, to create the best possible circumstances and set mood for the actors to perform their best, to help the crew give their best work and get the shoot executed as planned - but better. I like to find the problems in advance and to offer solutions actively.

I do climbing, sailing, snowboarding, trekking, tour skating, some martial arts etc. and I´ve found all of these skills to be helpful at work too from time to time. I can also handle ski-dos, ATV´s, cars, motorcycles, trucks and motor-boats.
