Son, brother, student, theatre worker, travel writer, film maker, media artist, teacher, husband, father. Since 2001 Professor for Dramatic Composition in Media at Robert Schumann School of Music and Media in Duesseldorf.


In his ongoing project PLACES_IN_TIME he creates audiovisual moods of unique places: single shots of long duration and synch sound recorded in stereo or surround sound.


PLACES_IN_TIME is inspired by a verse of T.S. Elliot’s poem „Ash Wednesday“:
Because I know that time is always time
And place is always and only place
And what is actual is actual for only one time
And only for one place
