About me

When I was small, my mum used to observe me playing with my fingers on the table like on the piano. Luckily for me, she got me the right equipment a couple of years later, and my first used piano proved to be superior to the edge of the table. While working on my dissertation about Bernard Herrmann's score for "Vertigo", I discovered my passion for film music and shortly afterwards I scored my first short film. From there it wasn't such a long way to graduating from the National Film & Television School in 2006, with an MA (Distinction) in Composing for Film & Television. Before coming to the UK, I studied classical music at Freiburg's Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in my native Germany.

I was also selected from over 300 applicants, as one of twelve participants of the highly regarded
ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop, held in Los Angeles in July 2007. Mentored by Dario Marianelli (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice), I have been working on a wide range of British, German and international feature films, tv dramas and documentaries.
