Workfield Showroom About me Contact







Creating new sound experiences is one of my greatest passions.
For my sounddesign works I dive deeply into the story to enrich it on an acoustic level, making the emotions of the film audible.

In addition to an extensive sound library, I work intensively with own recordings and digital sound synthesis. My work is particularly made for surround and 3D audio formats.


Re-Recording Mixer

Also fascinating is the final integration of all elements into an aesthetic and consistent sound mix.
From quiet, intimate moments to epic sound eruptions. A harmoniously orchestrated symphony of noises.

The required time efficiency, close collaboration with the director and other departments, as well as the necessary knowledge of complex technical systems and workflows, make this task very exciting.


On Location

Location sound mixer for commercials and documentaries

In addition to my studio work, I am also active as a location sound mixer, specializing in commercials and documentaries.

I appreciate the challenge of creating the highest quality recordings in sometimes difficult filming locations.

For this, I use innovative microphone techniques and combine industry-proven methods and equipment with approaches from other areas of sound engineering.

This is especially important when immersive sound recording of specific products or environments is desired, or when achieving the highest possible quality in interview and conversation situations.

Instructor & Workshops

I enjoy sharing my knowledge and passion.

As a guest lecturer, I am active at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, among other institutions. I conduct workshops and volunteer as a juror for various media education film and audio drama festivals.





About me

At the age of ten, I began attending the local youth media center, which included a youth radio editorial team. There, I had the opportunity to create my own radio segments under professional supervision and even go live on air.

Quickly becoming fascinated with the topic, I spent many hours of my youth there, learning the basics of audio technology and software. I created radio features and audio dramas that won several small festival awards, and later also worked on student short films.

This sparked my passion for film. I was captivated by the high level of quality and professionalism in the film industry and the greater possibilities for sound design.

From that point on, it became my firm desire to do this as a full-time job.

After graduating from high school in 2013, I studied "Media Production & Technology" at the Technical University of Amberg-Weiden before I got the opportunity in 2016 to study sound for motion picture at the renowned Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.

I graduated with a diploma in 2019 and have since been working as a freelancer in Stuttgart.
