I am an experienced freelance Avid editor based in Berlin, Germany. My credits include four years (2003-2007) at MME Entertainment GmbH (Hamburg, Germany), editing various shows for all major German TV stations like Einsatz in vier Wänden (RTL), which was awarded with the Deutscher Fernsehpreis 2004 - the German Emmy Awards - for best daily show. Furthermore I edited shows like Schmeckt nicht gibt's nicht (VOX), Wedding Planer (Pro7), Unsere Besten (ZDF), Alive & Swingin' (Pro7), Bravo TV (Pro7), The Dome (RTL2), Love is blind (MTV) and Hot or Not (VIVA).

Since 1993 I edit independent feature films like Panta Rhei and Time for a Change - a documentary about AIDS in South Africa, that won the first price at the Le Mans Film Festival 2004 - Concours Européen du 1er Film Documentaire as best documentary film.

I also directed several short films which won numerous awards including the VIVA Music Television Award for Best Short Film 2002.
