about

i’m from vienna, austria.  as a boy i often sat in the orchestra my father played at, during real performances, hidden below in the pit.  (that's me, blond hair above on the steps on my parent's house in vienna.)  i played the harp full time at 16, tried modeling in new york city, eventually became a photographer and did an MFA in film at art center college of design in pasadena.  i've always tried to figure out what my purpose in life and society was.  i built my fashion portfolio in milan using polaroids, drove a cab in vienna.  vicissitudes.  always eager to experience life.  i love silence and nature, authentic connections and great art.  i've always been a passionate photographer.  in january 2016 my baby daughter satya (the sanskrit word for truth) was born.

i've been creating vintage modern films for about 2 years now, and i am truly loving it.  there is nothing like first of all, spending your day with excited, positive and loving people who are about to celebrate and embrace LOVE and then capturing all those beautiful little moments (and getting paid for it?  how amazing is that?) and THEN once done editing, you present your labor of love to human beings who are beside themselves with joy.  what a gig, what privilege this is!  i am so grateful to all my clients so far, and i look forward to meeting new ones.  

much love!
