I’m a composer and performing musician specialising in music for theatre, dance and visual media. Or to make it simple, writing music for stuff that moves totally is my thing!

I love to figure out a director’s vision of a project and then create great music that makes their vision even better. It is like a magic puzzle to me, cracking the code until what I see and what I hear are a perfect match. I like my music to have a presence without getting in the way of the bigger picture.

I grew up in Berlin and lived in Amsterdam and Arnhem (Netherlands) from 2004 – 2015.
I currently live in Switzerland. I studied electric guitar performance at the ArtEZ conservatory in Arnhem, NL (MA degree) and perform on guitar, bass-guitar and live-electronics.

So far I worked with Simon Tanguy with whom I did among others two productions at the Theatre de la Ville in Paris and one at the Frascati in Amsterdam. I did five pieces with De Kiss Moves from Amsterdam that toured all over the Netherlands and brought me two placements in Holland’s Got Talent. For Copenhagen based choreographer Antoinette Helbing I wrote two pieces that toured Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and the Phillippines. The Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg hired me for one production as well as Zeitraumexit in Mannheim.

With the performance duo Clashvoid I performed at a number of festivals and venues, e.g. Cite du Design St. Etienne (FR), International Poster and Graphic Design festival Chaumont (FR), Bimhuis, Zaal 100, ot301, occii Amsterdam (NL), Dokfest Filmfestival Kassel (GER), Shiny Toys Festival Mülheim (GER).
In 2014 we performed in Capetown, SA during World Design Capital, supported by the Amsterdam Funds for the Arts.

Since my move to Switzerland in 2015 I’m working with Swiss theater group Lowtech Magic and B-Bühne Aarau with pieces performing in Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
More current and upcoming projects can be found in the News part of the website.

I also do installation and film work, that you can view in the performance section of the site.
