Welcome to my website! I'm a Germany-based freelance digital compositor, doing visual effects for feature films, tv productions and commercials. My digital compositing packages of choice are Nuke and Fusion. I have been working in the vfx industry as a digital compositor since 2007. Starting as a full time Fusion compositor, but working mainly as a freelance Nuke compositor over the last several years.

To get an impression of my lastest work, check out my current digital compositing showreel and the related shotbreakdown. For a more detailed overview of visual effects projects I have worked on, visit my filmography.
