What?

Editing

Editing

Creating a coherent story from single shots, a story that informs you, moves you, changes your perspective: This is what I do. You'll find a couple of examples on this site.

Encoding

Encoding

Whether for ingest or delivery: Keeping up with codec technology is hard. Good thing you've got somebody who'll make your video look good on any platform.

Workflow

Workflow

Plan well, scream less: in order to keep your angry outbursts to your family life (where they belong), I'll plan workflows so you can be on your best behaviour in the post facility.

Shark Attack

Personal:

I'm in my 30s (Planning ahead! I won't have to update this for a couple of years) and live in Berlin with my wife and three kids. See, I'm used to working in stressful environments.

And yeah, about that shark thing. I was just enjoying a little 25km swim when suddenly – gulp – I had a wooden leg. Just like that, sometimes life works that way. Anyway, you're supposed to make the best of it, so I teamed up with a parrot and since then have a part-time job as a pirate. Arrrrr.*

*(So maybe I just made up that last paragraph. But you never know for sure, right?)
