I’m an independent Polish/Austrian film director, author, film producer & photographer from Berlin. I’ve studied cinema and photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. My documentary films look at social issues with a focus on deep personal stories. They’ve screened at hundreds of international film festivals receiving prizes and were shown in cinemas and international TV. My last fiction film screenplay has been nominated for best screenplay in Germany. I worked with public broadcasters like ZDF, Arte, BR, 3sat, ORF and received funding from all major public funds in Germany, Austria and the EU. I also work as an expert on European funds and at international film forums. I’m a fellow of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, Robert Bosch Stiftung, Misereor Stiftung & of Literarisches Colloquium Berlin.

I’m a passionate street & social photographer curious about culture, people, encounters and adventure. Next to my work in films and photography, I also work in authentic communication and needs-focused self development putting individual experience, feelings, needs into words that create clarity, connection and inner growth.
I’m also a passionate impro dancer and somatics (touch) explorer moving inbetween techno and jazz.
I mostly don’t work for money – I work out of joy and curiosity for values I want to support.
