I was born in Basel, Switzerland and have lived most of my life in Zürich.
When I graduated from Literargymnasium Rämibühl in 2015 I chose animation as the topic of my graduation project and enjoyed working on it so much that I started studying 3d animation at the University of Lucerne the very same year.

The reason for my delight in this new-found medium were the unlimited possibilities it provided to bring ones ideas to life, which has always been and still is one of my favourite occupations, whether by sketching and drawing or writing.
I especially love how even the subtlest of movements can define a character, narrate the unspoken or add wit and humour to a situation, which is why spotting and recreating these details is the ideal profession to me!

My passion and main strength is more realistic 3D creature and character animation, whether it is in combination with live-action or in completely animated projects.
