I moved to Berlin in 2006, since then I call it home. Intermittently in Cologne, Barcelona, New York and lots of traveling.

Dream job when you were a child?
I think I wanted to be a vet, but one day my cat got sick and we had to put him to sleep at the local vet, after that I decided to no longer pursue this goal. It was very sad. When I turned 11, my parents gave me my first point and shoot Camera and I started to take weird pictures of trash and things I found on the street.

Movies.

My camera is more like a tool. It helps me to freeze these special moments and bring them back home like souvenirs I’m collecting.

Berlin and NYC.

Cake. I love all kinds of cakes. And pizza.
