About me

I'm creative

Ever since I first touched a camera as a child, I have developed a keen eye and a natural sense for visual beauty. Color grading is not only my job, but also my passion. I'm looking forward to helping you develop the perfect look for your next project and bringing your vision to life!

I'm experienced

In the last ten years, I have color-graded uncounted TV commercials ranging from beautiful people and shiny cars to beers and burgers and everything in between. I have also worked on a variety of short films and feature films, music videos and documentaries and I have experience in creating dailies. A list of directors and DOPs I worked with is available upon request.

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 timeframe!

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 workflows. I know what happens behind the curtains and how to get the best out of your images. Is your project heavy on effects? I can tech-talk with your compositors directly to find the best workflow!

I'm available

I am available as an independent freelancer to (post-) productions, agencies and individuals all across Germany and anywhere in Europe. My place or yours? Or maybe a remote session? Everything is possible!
