My main field of work is sound design & mixing for films

Over the years I developped a working relationship with many film directors, such as Andrew Kötting, Ben Rivers, Xiaolu Guo, the Quay Brothers,Steve Dwoskin, as well as internationally in Switzerland, France, Germany etc

I am now also exploring the connex fields of picture editing and music composing for films

Here is an selection of projects I've been involved with
