Born in Bogotá, Colombia, I'm a mix of German, Swiss, and Italian heritage. I'm fluent in German, Spanish, and English. I studied documentary filmmaking at KHM in Cologne, Germany. Since 2007, I've worked as a videojournalist and filmmaker for German TV (ARD, NDR, SWR, RBB, etc.).
I'm also a Videojournalism-Trainer, coaching individuals in independent video content creation. Currently, I'm launching a marketplace for ethically traded goods from conflict-affected Colombian regions. This venture represents my passion for filmmaking and social impact. Exciting times lie ahead.
