About me

I'm creative

Besides music, movies and photography are my big passions in life. Ever since I first touched a camera as a child, I have developed a natural sense for visual beauty and a keen eye for details. Color grading is not only my job, but also my passion. I look forward to helping you develop the perfect look for your next project and bringing your vision to life!

I'm experienced

I have more than ten years of experience as a colorist. I have graded commercials, feature films, series, documentaries and music videos. Shiny hair, shiny cars, tasty burgers, tasty beer, people looking for something, people running from something, tears of joy and tears of despair, I've seen it all! Mainstream cinema, small art projects, big international ad campaigns, touching documentaries, crazy music videos, it's the mixture that I love!

I'm quick

Time is money and budgets are always tight. I know how to use my tools efficiently and I am comfortable and used to working under pressure. Whether your film just needs a final touch or requires complex looks and precisely animated masks, we'll make the most of your available time!

I'm talkative

A picture is worth a thousand words, but we shouldn't need as many to find the right look for your project. Communication is key and I am very accustomed to working client-attended sessions. I am fluent in German and English. Swearing in Finnish as required.

I'm a geek

I have a strong background in color science, digital imaging and modern workflows. I know what happens behind the curtains of color grading and how to get the best out of your images. You have to deliver multiple formats and color spaces or your project is heavy on visual effects? I can assist you to find the right workflow for your project!

I'm available

I am available as an independent freelancer to (post-) productions, agencies and individuals all across Germany and anywhere in Europe. I also have my own grading suite in Hamburg and offer remote grading sessions with Davinci Resolve.
